You can turn the Menus ON/OFF with the "Menus" checkbox next to the
My understanding of the right hand frame (looking at the title at
the top) is that this frame displays signals on your Rx Frequency
and the left hand frame shows ALL signals across the Band.
Personally I pick a Tx frequency that seems to be clear (at least on
my end) and transmit there with the "Hold Tx Freq" button checked.
However, there have been times when I can call and call a station
that way (say for as long as 1/2 hour) with no result. When I
change my Tx Freq to his frequency, I get a quick response. Why?
Who knows. But, for that reason, I would not want the "Hold Tx
Freq" button to be hard-wired to the ON position.

First of all, this is a marvelous piece of software and I very
much enjoy using it. I have been a software developer (53 years)
and now concentrate on application security (companies pay me to
break their software). I appreciate good software when I use it.
I've been using WSJTX, for the last several months. First, with a
compromised antenna setup (40 meter dipole 5 feet high on all
bands) and now a little better (high 40 meter dipole, high 80
meter dipole, 160 meter dipole).
There are a few aspects of WSJT operation that I don't understand
I'm running on an Intel NUC with Xubuntu, latest version. As a
result, I have zero problems keeping the time synchronized within
a hundredth of a second, avoiding all the problems that many are
having running Windows.
First is the contents of the right-hand pane. It mostly makes
sense, but occasionally there are entries there that don't seem to
correspond to things I am currently calling, or have recently
worked. Sometimes clearing the right hand pane will make them not
show up again, but not always. Is there some user control for what
shows up there?
Next, I have lost the menu bar. The function keys will bring up
some of the items, such as F2 for settings, but I'm not seeing one
for changing mode. But the underlying question is how can I get
the menu bar back?
The final question is in two parts. First, rhetorical: Why do
stations answer my CQ on my transmit frequency? (It seems like
operators new to WSJTX are more likely to do this). The
non-rhetorical question is why not have "Hold TX frequency" set as
