I usually click on allow transmit as soon as the software thinks the exchange is complete.

Then, if you get a repeat RRR or RR73, the software auto sequences to your 73 msg instead of cq.

Sometimes it's like whack-a-mole trying to keep the button red if I'm on a busy band and getting late decodes.

Ken,

Thank you for sharing.  Your experience exemplifies one of the biggest issues we have in ham radio.   The lack of reading instruction manuals.  As you mentioned, all those internet "resources" and the vast majority of them are simply an accidental solution, or strait up wrong in some cases.   Yet, where did you find the working solution?  The instruction manual.   In fair defense, there is one set of "how to" making it's way through social media this week that is pretty darn good.   It actually follows both the WSJT-X User Guide and 991A manual.
 
I too have a 991A and it took all of 10 minutes to configure for the WSJT-X modes.  The WSJT-X User Guide told me what settings I needed to configure to what values.  The 991A manual told me how to set them.  

Again, thank you for sharing and pointing out how important reading the documentation is.   We need to see much, much more of this across all of the ham radio community.

I was away from the hobby for 30 years and the FT-991A was the first rig I procured upon return. So, everything but the fundamentals were completely foreign. 

I got the rig working FT8 on SSB first (mostly by accident through trial and error). Once I realized the manual's use of "USB" didn't always mean Upper Sideband and sometimes meant Universal Serial Bus, things started to become more clear :)

Observing that every online recommendation suggested different settings and noting that many of them simply didn't make sense with even my rudimentary knowledge of the radio (like changing baud rates for a port that obviously wasn't used) I quickly concluded that many others had accidentally gotten their setup to work and then just published their settings.

So I decided to ignore everything but the manual and took the time to learn what each of the 150+ settings actually does (to the minimal extent the manual explains them).

I was then able to set up the radio to work using the recommended Data method or the USB method.
I use the Data method because it leaves the USB settings for USB.
I work 6M on a different rig.

Setting the drive level using the Pwr slider as currently done is good.  Would also love two (2) small "up" and "down" buttons for adjusting the power in small increments (e.g.:  0.1, 0.2, or 0.3 dB steps) to get the drive level "just right" while operating.  Another way might be setting the Pwr with a value (e.g.: 0, -10, -20, etc.) and then using the Pwr slider as a "fine tune" and having a finer resolution range.  I notice having to adjust the Pwr slider slightly after a bit of operating so not driving too hard.  Using the Pwr slider now seems to be course and quite quick in trying to make a slight drive level change during a session.

I notice on PSK Reporter, there are quite a few stations running Q65 on Six Meters.

The only thing I can't seem to figure out is what duration, and which submode they are using..   I'm assuming submode A, but Is it 15 second or 30 second?

Windows updates do that on a regular basis.   I suggest that when you download the drivers, you SAVE the file somewhere you can find it again, then install from that saved file.    For sure as the sun rises in the east, the next Windows update will mess up the codecs again.

While that seems like a good idea, eveyone's computer/monitor does not display the same, nor have the space for everything; i.e. it's really hard to make out anything on a 10 inch screen!

I removed js8call and wsjtx from ubuntu software app.

I reinstalled js8call and wsjtx with ubuntu software app.

now the sudo apt update and full-upgrade doesn't complain

Hi Pat,

you cannot mix the Debian package we provide with ones provided by package maintainers. If you want to install the WSJT-X v.2.2.2 package called wsjtx-data from the repo then remove the separately installed wsjtx package first:

sudo dpkg -P wsjtx
sudo apt install wsjtx-data

or conversely:

sudo apt remove wsjtx-data

Hi Pat,

you cannot mix the Debian package we provide with ones provided by package maintainers. If you want to install the WSJT-X v.2.2.2 package called wsjtx-data from the repo then remove the separately installed wsjtx package first:

sudo dpkg -P wsjtx
sudo apt install wsjtx-data

or conversely:

sudo apt remove wsjtx-data
sudo dpkg -i ~/Downloads/wsjtx-2.3.0_amd64.deb

Hello Ken,
Thank you for sharing this suggestion and describing how you cured your problems. Yes, I should probably upgrade, not in my habit to stay behind. However, I am hesitant since the issues I described never occur while using the program. They only pop up on a day after a shut-off and a start of a new session. I also noticed they coincide after MS installs the so called "Improvements".. I am not addressing the "Security updates".  This older WJT-X version 2.1.2 works flawlessly and I hate to start a new venture that obviously has a lot more than what I need. I often think of the saying "if it ain't broken, don't fix it". If things get worse I will certainly change my mind..

Hello Jacques

Maybe you should update your WSJT-X to 2.4 rc1.

While you may not like this response, I have had a recent experience where this was indeed the proper solution.
I am mentioning this because I have a TS-570S, and while it is not a 590 as you have, these radios may share some of the problem causing behavior.

OK, here is some boring detail:
I started using FT8 with version 2.2.  WSJT-X would frequently report loss of communication with the radio although I did not need to reboot my computer, I did suffer this kind of problem.  It was suggested that I update to V2.3.  This did not completely resolve the problem.  v2.4 solved the problem.

The problem:  In my case, my radio would occasionally respond to an 'IF' (information query) command with an answer that was one or two bytes shorts.  Hamlib, the library that is used to interface with the various radios, would reject the responses that were one byte too short (in v2.3) but responses that were two bytes too short would cause hamlib to report loss of communication.
I know this because when validating the problem, mostly for my own curiosity, I instrumented the serial interface to my rig and I could see the short responses come out of the radio.

With WSJT-X v2.2, I saw a loss of communication message frequently (once every few hours).  With v2.3, the messages were less frequent (once or twice a day).  Since running v2.4 for almost a week, I have not seen that problem at all (except when I tripped the circuit breaker to my radio, but I do not think that this event counts)

Good luck
