I don’t know what’s going on here.

I lost the audio device and unplugged the USB, restarted the software with the USB back in. It was briefly working, including Tx. I stopped transmit, and then I couldn’t select “Enable Tx” again.

I restarted the software, and now it’s gone deaf again.

Also check in your system settings that your output volume isn’t muted. I’ve had that happen to me a few times.

I had some initial success with WSPR, but since then the software appears completely deaf on all modes; I think since I updated WSJT-X (it’s been a while since I played with it).

The MIDI setup volume sliders are greyed out at 0 volume, and the WSJT-X dB scale (lower left) shows 0dB all the time.

I don’t know what’s changed, and I can hear signals on the FT991A speaker.

I have tried setting the FT991A menus to various combinations as per various advice online, but am obviously missing something.

I am using MacOS 10.14.6, WSJT-X v2.3.0 0c42df, CAT control via USB (which works apart from the audio).

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thank you.

Hi Jeremy,

one thing to check is that WSJT-X has been authorized to use the microphone input in "System Preferences->Security".
