I have two rigs
currently running WSJT-X v2.3.0.
One is an ICOM
The other is a
Because I use
external antenna tuners on both, I have checked both the
"Transmit" and "Tune" check boxes in the "Remember power
settings by band" group box on the "Audio" tab and set the
"Pwr" slider to the values I prefer on each band.
This is a very

But on the
IC-7300, after using the "Tune" button, I will often need to
"cycle" the transmitter before it will produce power.
I click the
Tune button and then click it again to cease transmission.
Then, I click
the Enable Tx button and wait for the next transmission cycle.
transmission begins, it's often a 0 Watt transmission - by
which, I mean that the IC-7300's fan comes on, the Vd drops
slightly, and the Id shows a few amps - but Po is zero on the
rig as well as the external meters.
The Pwr slider
is at the correct (non-zero) position at all times.

I have found
that clicking on the "Tx even/1st" check box twice (cycling
the transmitter) is the easiest/quickest way to get things
working properly again, but clicking "Halt Tx" followed by
"Enable Tx" works as well.
This occurs on
all bands and I can cause it to occur with at most 3 attempts,
almost always with 2, and frequently with only 1 attempt.
No RFI problems
in the well-grounded shack.
PTT is CAT.
Baud rate is
Tx delay is .2
