Locked Re: Mac OS Update Freezes WSJT-X #macOS #stopped_working

Thanks guys. I’ll keep my fingers crossed an update comes along that fixes the issue.

I now see the other posts describing this issue. I’ll try doing a more thorough search before posting in the future.

Thanks & 73,

The update is available in System Preferences/General/Software Update

I have 13.0.1 and my applications will not recognize any ports except the /dev/bluetooth
Not sure yet on where the issue is.

Is anyone else seeing this problem on Mac?

Since the Mac OS to 13.x update, WSJT-X locks up when it transmits in FT8.
Until the update, it received and decoded normally. Now, transmitting
usually causes the app's waterfall to stop flowing, the receive signal on
the lower left of the GUI to zero out, and when I quit WSJT-X, it must be
forced to quit in order to restart it. Sometimes stations reply to a call,
but then the app locks up and ends the exchange. Other times, it locks up
during the first transmission. The radio seems to receive normally.

Before the OS update, it all worked fine. It even happens even when Tx
power is reduced to 0 watts, so it’s not RF getting into the Mac. I also
removed and reinstalled WSJT-X. I'm hoping not to have to back out the OS

Mac OS 13.0.1 on iMac 3.1Ghz 6 Core i5
WSJT-X v2.5.4
Radio Flex 6600M with SmartSDR
JT-Bridge 3.4.3

Any suggestions?
