I'm having trouble getting my FT-991a to work correctly with WSJTX.

It will receive fine but I can't get it to send; at least I don't think it is.  When I try to send the CQ WV8VRC the power meter on the radio shows it's putting out maybe 5 watts.  When I first installed WSJTX it worked well.  However, since that time I have added some other radio software and it seems to have gone in the dump.  I have both the USB cable and a serial cable (plugged into the GPS/Cat port) connected the radio/computer.  I'm using Windows 10.

My question is, does anyone know the proper settings on the radio should be and then maybe a hint to what the settings in WSJTX should be.

Thanks everyone.

Hi Roger,

the post below details the steps to set levels for Tx when using WSJT-X:


Note particularly that using a Tx offset around 1500 Hz is essential when setting Tx levels.
