Good afternoon and welcome to my nightmare

Running the latest Raspberry Pi OS Lite 32 bit –previously  known as
Raspbian Buster - on a Pi 3B+. Trying to auto-start direwolf at reboot.
Wrote a cron job in nano using crontab –e

@reboot /usr/bin/rtl_fm –f 145.175M - | direwolf –c sdr.conf –r 24000 –D –

The file saved without error and assured me that the new crontab had been
installed. Now at reboot, quick as a flash, nothing happens. No error
message. Nada. Almost as if the cron job isn’t being run... or read... or
something. I know the command line works, that’s how I’m starting it at the

So what have I done wrong, or not done right? 🤔
