Locked Re: K3S and WSJT-X on 160M

Arthur Bernstein

Tried this briefly last night and seems to work.
Added for 160 meters FT8 another frequency of 1.908.000 in frequency chart, set K3 to Split, and WSJTX to NONE. Transmit on 1840.000 and receive on 1908.000. Everything remained OK after a test transmission.
Just remember to change settings when you’re finished trying to work JA on 160 FT8. Hopefully this will be a moot point when and if Japan changes their frequency allocations. Then just delete the 1908 addition.

A solution that does work. Thanks to Bill Sommerville of the WSJT support group for providing this information.


Although running this sort of split will work on some rigs using CAT control, by selecting "Settings->Radio->Split Operating->None", it is not officially supported.

If it doesn't work for your rig, then you can disable CAT control and set the rig's VFOs and SPLIT manually by selecting "Settings->Radio->Rig->None". This clearly cannot be used with CAT PTT commands but if your rig supports PTT via RTS use that, or VOX (or DATA VOX) on the rig.

You can make a separate configuration in WSJT-X to support this including the Rx the frequency for logging.


I hope this is of assistance to others.
