Sorry, guess that information might just be important. I have a FT991A connected via a USB connector. I am using RIGBlaster Advantage sound card. Here are scree shots I am hoping helps. Also got another different warning this morning:  





Again no issues what-so-ever with version 2.2.0, Any help would be appreciated.

You said you are hearing the WSJT transmit tones, but you didn't indicate from what device.  Coming out of the rig speaker? GOOD! That indicates the TxMon feature of your TS2000 is turned on.  Heard in the computer speaker? BAD! That means either you have routed WSJT audio 'playback' output to the wrong output device, or a Microsoft update has done it for you.
 
MOST* computers will not duplicate bluetooth RF audio to the (wired) speaker and headset jack, because the inherent delays within the BT encode/decode process create an intolerable echo effect which will quickly drive most listeners up the wall.  If your computer speaker is live, there's probably no audio being sent to te BT.  If there is BT audio, it likely includes WSJT Tx tones plus the Windows Alert sounds, beeps, chirps, and music you select in your System Sounds menu, all going to the default playback device. 
* But it seems there's always one supplier (or more) who does things differently.  Note the Rigblaster Blue catalog sheet says it will work with MOST transceivers and computers (but not all, as you are experiencing so far).

By “RF gain” being turned all of the way down I am assuming that you are using the controls on the 7300. If you are on a Windows computer, go into your sound settings, advanced tab. Select Microphone/USB audio codec. Right click on the icon to get into properties/levels and reduce the value there. You might want to center the RF/squelch control first. Reduce the level until the WSJTX incoming signal bar is where you want it.

Hope this helps

Discussion in this thread seems point to high noise at my station. However I live in a very small village 10 miles from a medium-sized town and 100 miles from a big city. Is my station THAT noisy?

Maybe it is? The incoming signal bar at lower left is often close to 80/red even though I have the RF Gain on my IC-7300 turned way down, often as low as it will go. Even with RF gain turned all the way down the signals continue to come in without any apparent diminishment and the incoming signal bar continues to flicker into red. Is it *this* that is causing my reports to be much lower than the stations answering me? Is high noise floor the only explanation for it, or is there something else I should be adjusting?

I am usually using just 22.33 watts of power and my antenna is a home-brew Carolina Windom (off-center-fed wire dipole). Not exactly a super-station. So is noise at my station the only possible explanation for what I'm seeing?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Hi

Your reception audio settings in IC-7300 may not be properly set. Have you followed instructions in pinned message #13890 Setting Windows WSJT-X Tx audio levels (ALL VERSION 2 VERSION) ?

The red in the rx thermometer is not healthy and could be a reason for your situation.

Many stations are running QRO on the digimodes, especially if chasing DX.   SNR has been discussed, so I won't go into that. but don't underestimate what QRO and a Yagi will do.  I see the same SNR disparity as well.  I use 5w on WSPR, but 80w on FT8/FT4/Q65 with less than contest station-quality type antennae.

locked Release candidate: WSJT-X 2.4.0-rc2 #Q65

Joe
 

We are pleased to announce release candidate WSJT-X 2.4.0-rc3, which includes the new digital mode Q65.

Q65 is designed for two-way QSOs over especially difficult propagation paths such as ionospheric scatter, troposcatter, rain scatter, TEP, EME, and other types fast-fading signals. Details and recommendations concerning the Q65 submodes are provided in the "Quick-Start Guide to Q65", available here:
https://physics.princeton.edu/pulsar/k1jt/Q65_Quick_Start.pdf

The WSJT-X User Guide now includes details about Q65 and is available here:

I can hear the tones in the PC speaker, yes. That's how I know they are being generated. And even when not using to PC speaker but using the TXMon I get no tones. Tones generated, yes; radio received, no. Like I said, I have tried all of this which is why I posted. I also have tried the hardware on my PC and my notebook. Different PCs, same behavior. I think I have a bad unit so I have decided to return the unit for a refund. I'm disgusted with WMR's poor technical support documentation and technician who I have been in contact with. He wants me to use the proper CAT commands (really, I don't program that) and flip a switch on the unit that doesn't exist.

 

Anyway, I think I have a defective Rigblaster Bluetooth and I am not satisfied with the performance at all. So I have given up and boxed everything up for a return authorization.

You said you are hearing the WSJT transmit tones, but you didn't indicate from what device.  Coming out of the rig speaker? GOOD! That indicates the TxMon feature of your TS2000 is turned on.  Heard in the computer speaker? BAD! That means either you have routed WSJT audio 'playback' output to the wrong output device, or a Microsoft update has done it for you.
 
MOST* computers will not duplicate bluetooth RF audio to the (wired) speaker and headset jack, because the inherent delays within the BT encode/decode process create an intolerable echo effect which will quickly drive most listeners up the wall.  If your computer speaker is live, there's probably no audio being sent to te BT.  If there is BT audio, it likely includes WSJT Tx tones plus the Windows Alert sounds, beeps, chirps, and music you select in your System Sounds menu, all going to the default playback device. 
* But it seems there's always one supplier (or more) who does things differently.  Note the Rigblaster Blue catalog sheet says it will work with MOST transceivers and computers (but not all, as you are experiencing so far).

Hi All,

I have had the same thing happen since I upgraded to the latest general release, I have three separate systems here, radios and PC's, it certainly does on my IC-9700 setup, will see if the HF 7610 and PC does it, as well as the 4M IC756, transverter and PC does it, all PC's are running WIN10, I thing with the latest updates, and the latest WSJT-X general release. All use HRD for logging (networked to log to on server the 7610 PC, i7 Processor & 16G Ram) with JTAlert as well. 

Will check this afternoon on the two other systems and report back.

it happened again yesterday - when I checked, the settings were all OK, but whilst the sound output was showing as the audio codec for the rig, looking at the windows sound I could see the audio was going to the speakers instead. Restarting wsjt-x fixed it.

Interesting.

That all sounds great. I wonder if anyone told the fortran runtime?
Fortran runtime knows all about it. What the runtime cannot do is to
open a file from an nonexistent or inaccessible directory.

Just installed version 2.3.0 on a fully updated Windows 10 Pro system. WSJT-X works well enough but I get a Rig Control Error dialog box every once in a while while the software is still running fine asking: "Do you wan to reconfigure the radio interface?" Clicking on Retry cancels the error box and software keeps on running without any need for any reconfiguration or further dialog boxes. Comes up without rhyme or reason and I would say about 5 times in an hour's period of time. Didn't have this while using version 2.2.x. on the same system. Any thoughts other than scrapping the Windows box in favor of Mac OS or Linux.

Hi Darrel,

what rig do you have and how is it connected to your PC for CAT control?
