Set up ( Radio type, CAT/VOX / Com port 4, baud rate 9600 / audio Input is mono for the computer <> microphone (Computer using Realtek Microphone and Output is Speaker Realtek Audio).


Tested OK ( green Test CAT button )  Test PTT button is greyed out.


Trying FT8 but no Band activity noted.  Wide graph indicates Tx.


Depending on what / when receive ( Monitor) the Decode button flashes Blue intermittently.


Tune button pressed ( steady clear tone ) so no issue there.


I can hear the ‘warble’ from speaker in my radio .... presuming that’s the problem, signal not going into the computer ?? Do I need a separate mic/spkr cable(s) between devices?


Can’t seem to find documentation on this issue.   


Did I miss something on the set up for ICOM IC 718?    


Windows 10 operating system.

Hi Rob,

have you installed a 3rd party time synchronization tool like the Meinberg NTP Client as reccommened in the WSJT-X User Guide?
