It should stay on whatever frequency you put it on - UNLESS you cause it to move by clicking on the waterfall, (control click, etc.)  By the way, you should not be transmitting and receiving on the same frequency normally.  Choose a clear frequency and stay there.  Double clicking on the waterfall should move only the green receive frequency, leaving your transmitter on the clear spot you put it on.

Hi Ron,

You could get a better service from a JTDX list as on this WSJT-X list there are mainly WSJT-X users and experts. We know very little about JTDX specialities.

Joe,

 

As I just said, you can colour it one way if you’ve not worked before, and default to colour it another way. By implication the default is “worked before”.

As one of the developers has told you several times -

*THERE IS NO B4 COLOR IN WSJTX*.

 

I have gone back to version 2 and checked - there is no B4 color in

any version 2, version 3 *or* version 4 (-RC#) level of WSJTX. The

lowest priority color is a general CQ ... it a station does not

qualify as "new" (e.g. "New Call" or "New Call on Band") they will

color with the "CQ in Message" color.

 

The only way to get an explicit "B4" color (on all transmissions -

not just CQ) is to use JT Alert and allow it to forward colors to

WSJTX.

Hi Phil,

 

It’s because if you have worked the DXCC or station before it will be one of the other colours. If none of those is selected it will colour in the default CQ. The implication is then that you have worked the station before on the current band. As long as you have the priority set correctly of course, and that is how you order the list.

Pete,

the SignaLink USB is not a CAT interface, if you do not have a separate CAT interface between your rig and PC then you must select "Settings->Radio->None" in WSJT-X. Use the "Tune" button on the main window to test you SignaLink USB audio and PTT function.

I don’t use JTAlert, I was just using B4 in place of before. Before my wsjtx crash, when I worked a station calling CQ, it was stored in the .adi file. The next time that station called CQ it showed up in a colour that I had chosen in the decode colour settings telling me I had worked them before. Now I can not see an obvious colour decode setting that says “worked before “. The only colour setting with CQ in it I can see is just the general CQ calling.


Re: Uncertainty about what DX station is using #FoxAndHound

The others are:  that you're not on a 'normal' FT8/FT4 frequency for that band; WSJT-X locks them out.    And that you'll only see the HOUND stations replying on the ODDs only, and the FOX only calling CQ and giving responses on the EVEN.
