Hi Peter,
Without knowing your rig and how it is connected to your PC for CAT control and your settings at Radio tab it is impossible to guess the reason. Does the Test CAT passes or is that failure a result of that test?

That looks like you are failing to connect via the USB cable - check that you have the right com port and baud rate. 


a bit more to work on would be appreciated as well!

Quick fix ... buy a cheap $6 or $7 USB sound dongle for the laptop.  It will have separate mic and speaker connections, and this then frees up the laptop's soundcard for normal computer sounds.

This laptop has a dual audio jack that is mic/headphones and is the only way to get audio on and out of the laptop.

Rig is a Kenwood TS-830S using the phones jack for audio out and the mike jack for audio in from laptop. I’m using VOX to trigger the rig.

WSJT-X v 2.3.1

I have used the rig with a Linux machine until recently with no problems.

Problem:
At startup with rig attached, the microphone is missing when I look in WSJT-X audio settings and the headphones show connected. The program will toggle the transmitter on but there is nothing being received because of the missing audio input to the laptop. It appears the laptop can’t find the mike unless there is audio coming into it. If I connect a mike/headphone to the jack and test it using Skype’s sound test the test works fine. Then when reconnecting inputs from rig to laptop I find the mike is now connected in the audio tab and WSJT-x works fine. I can then use FT8 for hours with now problems which indicates I am not dealing with some intermittent hardware issue. I have had to do this convoluted start-up procedure since I started using this laptop with my rig. Any suggestions as to a fix?

Most headphone/mic inputs are designed for electret mics and
look for a 1 mA current draw of the electret mic to turn on.

Try connecting a 2.2 K to 3.3 K resistor across the mic input
of the computer (in parallel with the audio coming from the
rig headphone jack). Typically one would have a 2.7K resistor
across the mic input, a 1uF to 5 uF cap in series with the audio
and a 10:1 voltage divider (27K resistor - can be 5K to 50K as
needed) to prevent over driving the computer mic input between
the cap and headphone jack.

If you can get into the sound card settings, you *might* be able
to *disable* "jack switching" in order to leave the mic input
available full time.

Hi Taka-san,

hardware PTT sharing is working for me with WSJT-X v2.4.0, the hamlib_settings.json file to configure PTT sharing is no longer needed.

The error message you are getting is indicating that another application has the serial port used for PTT open, or perhaps another instance of WSJT-X has set PTT. You can only set PTT from one application at any particular time.

THERE IS *NO* EXPLICIT B4 COLOR IN WSJTX.

The only color on B4 is any residual color - are all your "decode highlighting" options the same (including the checked options)?

Are you using an eternal program - like JT Alert - on both systems
and is that program configured the same on both systems?

I'm a believer in KISS -- Keep It Simple, Stupid!:) If your radio supports VOX from the input you're using to send the digital signal, try that option. I've done nothing but VOX for SSB, RTTY, and WSJT modes for at least 15 years of WSJT modes and heavy duty contesting. K3 since 2008, FT1000MP before that.

I see you have the same serial port specified for CAT Control as well as PTT via RTS.  Is that what you intend to do? Did it work like that before? I've never used such a configuration, personally would use a separate serial device for PTT if I were using hardware keying, but that's the one thing that jumps out at me to ask about.

Hi Lars,

Omni-Rig can only support a limited number of modes on your rig, there are insufficient to support FSK RTTY modes as well as SSB-DATA modes. You must amend your rig's Omni-Rig .ini file to send appropriate CAT commands, and decode CAT query commands, to support the USB-DATA mode of your rig. If you do not want to do that then you should select the "Settings->Radio->Mode->None" option in WSJT-X and set your rig's mode manually when using WSJT-X. Alternatively do not use Omni-Rig, but I assume you are using the rig server because another application is sharing the control of your rig.
