I just tried this, however my old problems returned. It might just be a
radio setting I have...something unique to me. I'm back to "faking it"
until I figure out why. Thanks all.

Please try the latest hamlib and see if rig split works for you. There
have been some changes that can help.
New hamlib for Windows installation directions
#1 Shut down WSJTX/JTDX
#2 Download either the 32-bit or 64-bit DLL matching the 32/64-bit
of WSJTX/JTDX -- hopefully your browser doesn't block it but may warn you
multiple times.
If you can do a "Save As" you can save it directly in \WSJT\WSJTX\bin and
replace the libhamlib-4.dll that is there.
#3 If you don't save directly you need to open a file browser and move
file that way.
If you're not familiar with that here's a video on the file browser -

My system worked great for the past 6 months with no problem until
latest Windows 10 upgrade foisted itself on my laptop.
I ran a O/S backup onto the computer in an attempt to restore the
computer state prior to the last backup (last week) and operations
returned to normal. Laptop is a Dell Latitude and have no idea
this only affects mine. You asked if anyone else had a similar
