locked Re: FT8 Receive Problem #FT8

Gary Rogers

For the longest time, I never needed any time sync software. I could just switch Apple time locations and it would be right on the money. But once I upgraded a while back (I forget whether it was Big Sur or the one before), I couldn’t stay synced being out well over one second. That’s when I installed chrony control and haven’t had a problem since.

I’ve done nothing other than rely on the standard time sync (System Preferences->Date & Time) and set “Set date and time automatically" using the default service (time.apple.com <http://time.apple.com/>) on all my machines to be within 0.1 or 0.2 seconds of what time.is <http://time.is/> reports.

You don’t need software if you are already at less than that!

I am running FT8 with an ICOM 7300 an a Mac computer. After opening WSJTX, I am able to receive calls, but when I try a QSO, no one responds to repeated calls. I am sending up to 30W. I can see incoming signals on my waterfall. Where do I set transmit frequency? What is my problem?
