Hi Paul,

As Bill said after you setup the virtual port pair you should be able to connect SDR console to one port and wSJT to the other.  You don't need omnirig as the interface built into WSTJ will take care of it.  There are a couple of good Youtube videos that explain how to do it.

Hello Dick and group.
I need to do this with my TS2000 also. I've downloaded the com0com but am too dense to figure out how to do this.. Can I get some of the screenshots. I think it might help.

Charlie,

until someone answers your CQ the software has no idea what audio offset they will be on, as soon as you double-click their call your Rx offset will be moved to their offset. The software cannot do any better than that.

I think default settings has this problem, to fix:
File/Settings/General/check - Disable Tx after sending 73

Even worse is this:
You're sitting and waiting, and a super rare DX shows up
You call, and nothing happens??!?
Finally you realize you have no Tx Power, WSJT-X isn't generating audio (even though your PC never sleeps).
You quickly kill WSJT-X, and Restart
You enable Tx, and suddenly 6 stations are calling you, and the DX is long gone.  You're calling CQ unintentionally.
Is there some way to inhibit/prevent CQ?  If 50 stations are always calling CQ, what's the benefit?

I had an issue with my Surface Pro laptop not restarting properly every time it went into hibernation. It would boot up into the text/options menu and not proceed to boot into windows. As it is always plugged in and used as a dedicated “desktop” for my ham apps I permanently disabled hibernation. He is a link to how to do that with additional options if it is a laptop and you will be using it as such.


I also set my screen saver to a blank screen when it engages.

If you are already transmitting and receiving using WSPR, then you are already on track for using the FT8 mode; there is not much more to set up.

First of all, check your audio settings are optimal, which you probably have already done for WSPR.  Set the digital gain (TX power) slider for each band you want to use. Check the ALC does not overdrive on your rig. Set your rig TX power to your desired level, probably max. 50W for FT8 if your rig is 100W full power as FT8 is a constant carrier mode.   The WSJT-X manual is a good reference.

Try calling CQ on a clear frequency. 40m or 20m are probably the best bands to try first.  Shift+click on the waterfall to set your TX freq.

Wait and see what happens.  It works just like WSPR, except you're making an actual QSO and it isn't as sensitive as WSPR for DX.  FT4 can be fun too.  It is less sensitive by a few dB than FT8 but it is made up for by the fact is often less busy, which means it can sometimes be easier to work stations further away.  JT65 worth a try, but it is not very popular now.

I have a pro-tip also, if you want:
I recommend operating with Split mode if you are using CAT control to your rig.  Use the "Fake-it" option.  Doing it this way makes a much cleaner TX signal and you won't have to adjust your audio settings when you change from a low audio frequency to a high one.  WSJT-X will keep the audio mid range and your RF frequency will be altered to compensate, so the DX station will hear you at 250Hz for example, but your audio output doesn't have to go that low.

Hope you have fun with FT8

Hi Kelly,

something is fundamentally broken in the Windows MME audio subsystem. Windows has several audio sub-systems which is why some applications see your audio devices and others (WSJT-X) does not. I suggest you contact Microsoft support and ask them how to fix the problem.

Hi Paul,

com0com is one of a number of utilities that can provide a virtual serial port loopback. Like a cross-ver modem cable but all within software. Once you configure a serial port loopback pair you will have two new virtual serial ports, connect one to the Kenwood TS-2000 rig emulating in SDR-Console and the other to WSJT-X as if it were talking to  TS-2000.

Hi Kelly,

if rebooting your PC does not resolve this issue then try deleting the
audio devices that are not behaving correctly in Windows Device Manager,
then reboot again to allow them to re-install automatically.

Hello Dick

thank you for your response !

i’ve managed to pipe audio from SDRConsole to WSJT-X, also to FLDigi, which btw receives the audio and runs simultaneously with WSJT-X.

you do not mention omnirig, is omnirig a component in the setup you’re instructing ?

i see in SDRC TOOLS —> SETTINGS —> OPTIONS, a setting for a com port to communicate with third party programs such as loggers, etc

i have 2 virtual cables installed, but neither appear as options in this window … i’m guessing that this necessitates the com0com functionality

looking into WSJTX, SETTINGS —> RADIO

and selecting OmniRig1

then “TEST CAT” : “Rig failure OmniRig : port is not available

manually starting OmniRig2,

(a) there is Rig Type (TS2000 is an option)

(b) Port : 1-20 are options


i should probably just install com0com and this would likely all fall into place with the needed com port appearing both in SDRC & WSJTX (?)

Hi Pau,

Its not too complicated. SDR Console looks like a Kenwood TS2000. You will need two additional software packages, one for virtual audio and one to for com ports. I use com0com for com port mapping and VBCable for audio.

You assign a com port in SDR Console, map it to another port using com0com and use that port in WSJT. Set the audio output in SDR Console to the input of the VBcable and the input of WSJT to the output of the VBCable. You should be good to go.

I have set this up for WSJT, Fldigi, and HRD.

If you need more help let me know and I will make screen shots and send them to you.

To give more info on the problem:

With VOX turned on in the radio, and the audio TX is set to 1499 or less, the radio would switch to 7.073.5 on the first transmission; when going back to receive, it would stay at the transmit freq (which was moved due to being at an audio frequency of 1499 or less), such as 7.073.5; the next transmission would be at 7.073.0, and remain there for the receive period. The next TX would be at 7.072.5, and the cycle would continue.
 
  Along the same line, if the TX audio is 999 or less then the TX frequency would go down by 1000 Hz instead of 500 Hz.

  IF the TX audio was set above 1499 (but at or less than 2000) the problem did not occur, even with VOX active!

  With the TX audio at 2001 or greater, the frequency would creep up by 500 Hz on each cycle.

Turning VOX off has fixed the issue. Radio was getting confused, Bill said.

Not quite sure what you mean by " It always shows 500 to 1000 Hz between xmit and rcv freqs ". I have Hold TX Freq checked, so WSJTX shows me wherever I am TXing seperate from the RX freq. The radio does not show my audio frequency.

As I understand, your xmit freq is a combo of the suppressed carrier freq shown on the radio's dial, and the audio freq shown on the waterfall.

When your radio goes from 7.074 to 7.073.500, does the audio freq rise by 500 Hz?

On my FTdx3000, it always shows 500 to 1000 Hz between xmit and rcv freqs. I have always assumed this is to allow wsjt-x to choose the better spot in the radio's audio passband.

Tried unchecking TX freq changes; no change. Tried both VFOs; no change. Tried stand-alone version of WSJTX; no change. I can monitor 7.074; when I start a transmission it immediately goes to 7.073.5; the next transmission causes the frequency to go down to 7.073.0; and so on, and so on. Went back to 2.3.0 rc2; same thing!?! What the heck?

Hi David,

which rig are you using and how is it connected to your PC for CAT control and for audio?

locked New Guy Question on FT8 and other related Modes and Settings #WSJTX_config #NewUser

MARTIN LAMPNER
 

Hello everyone,

Thanks for all the help its been great. Got WSPR up and running well, I am amazed how well it works. Based on the Delaware shore, in the States I have been heard as far north as Iceland, as far south as the Polarstern Icebreaker in the south Atlantic around 40 degrees South, and in Hawaii and eastern Europe using my home built 20 meter ground mounted vertical. I  am hearing stations almost as well. I assume the difference in range is I am running 5 watts and I know many people are running far less when they transmit.

Today's question is I hope a simple one. I am planning to explore FT8 and the other modes in WSJT-X do other modes require changes in the settings  as far as I can tell it does not seem to be the case. I am assuming (always a dangerous word hence this question) that if the software is properly configured for cat control and is able to hear and transmit no matter what mode your in other than the frequency being different everything else would remain the same.  As always thanks in advance.
