When using WSJTX to operate FT8 on 40, 80 and 160 meter, I have no issues. When I try to transmit on 30, 20, 17 and 15m, I get a CAT error. It either shows that it cannot verify VFO or PTT state and wants me to configure the radio settings again.I am running Windows 7 64bit. I am brand new to FT8 and just starting using it last night. I tried searching for a resolution, but could not locate one.

Your help is appreciated,

Hi Scott,

rig control issues that only occur on some bands are invariably due to RFI issues. Try reducing power to minimum, using a diferent aerial, or dummy load to verify if RFI is causing the problem.
