In WSJT-x below. USB connection between PC and rig. In the rig ,
almost no settings, just default. Yes CI-V "Transceive ON". Don't
know if it's needed for WSJT but I think for the PA. The PA (SPE
Expert) is connected via the standard CI-V connector (3.5 mm).

I should add the amp should
be on the remote CI-V port on the rig.

I have not changed the PA firmware. I have not
changed the rig firmware. I have updated WSJT-x. If
the "feature" in WSJT-x with changing the rig
frequency and the PA frequency at the same time wasn't
intended it was probably a bug which is now fixed. In
hamlib or WSJT-x. I don't have the insight into the
code. If it was a "bug", it was a good bug. And it
have always been there. It was convenient to switch
band from WSJT-x but now it's not. I have now
programmed my rig and do the change from that one

I can confirm similar
behavior with my Icom IC-7600 and Expert 1.5K-FA.
On version 2.4.0 - no issues.
One version 2.5.0 rc 5 (latest) it does not. You
can change bands with WSJT-X and the radio
follows, but the Expert doesn't change bands. To
action that one need to turn the VFO on the radio
a bit (ie send out QRG data). In the past that was
Another interesting test is to put the radio into
some odd ball frequency and then start WSJT-X.
When it comes up it recognized the incorrect QRG
(its in red) so obviously its reading the radio
For the developers : I think what is happening is
that in the past the rig was commanded to reply
with the QRG once it it was set and the Expert was
listening for this output from the RIG, not
WSJT-X. Now thats is no longer happening and could
be a generic behavior across many Icom rigs now
with the updated hamlib files.

I'm not sure what you and others with similar issues
expect the WSJT-X developers to do. We make no
statements on CAT control of ancillary devices that
might be connected to your rig. If WSJT-X is
correctly setting the rig frequency, and optionally
the mode, and WSJT-X is able to read the rig
frequency, which it does each polling interval, then
CAT control is working as designed. Perhaps you need
to contact the support team for your PA and ask how
this might be happening.
You might also try a different
"Settings->Radio->Split Operating" option as
the Tx VFO being used might have some bearing.
