Thank you for accepting me into this group.

I have been using WSJT-X on an IC7300 for about 3 months and it is fantastic software!  
Recently I bought a MC-HF RS918 SDR radio clone, called a B188, for QRP use in the field. I would like to use it with WSJT-X and have seen a number of YouTube videos using examples of this clone working with WSJT-X and also HRD. The settings folks are using in these videos don't seem to work for me with this radio, but I am a newbie and not a wizard by any means so I could be missing something.

Can anyone tell me what settings to use with this radio to integrate with USB to WSJT-X? I have enclosed a couple of pictures for more information.  The sign-on screen at boot up for this SDR radio says the following:

"BS188 Transceiver
Hardware License:  cc  by-nc-sa 3.0
K. Antanassov, MONKA, www.m0nka.co.uk
Version 2.12.00
Firmware License: GNU GPLv3"

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

73 and thanks,

Hi Casey,

the mcHF emulates a Yaesu FT-817 fro CAT control, I suspect your BS188 is similar. Have you tried selecting "Settings->Radio-Rig->Yaesu FT-817" an "Settings->Radio->PTT Method->CAT" along with suitable serial port parameters like baud rate?
