Jeremy,

Check your audio settings in WSJT-X again. Sometimes macOS will add multiple USB sound card ports. I have to every once in a while change the SERIAL port that WSJT-X is listening to under Preferences - Radio.

What mode is selected? Some modes are 15 seconds, some are 30, some
are 60, there are even modes that will transmit for 5 minutes (300
seconds).

My water fall seems to be OK but where my problem is in the BAND
ACTIVITY window as I show no receive.
If you see activity on the waterfall but nothing is decoded in
BAND ACTIVITY, either your computer clock is too far out of spec
(generally more than +/- 2 seconds) or you have not selected the
correct mode for the frequency being monitored. The former is the
most common issue but given your comment that you are transmitting
for one minute, the latter may be your problem.

I believe he also said he was transmitting 60 second periods, so he is also on the wrong mode or sequence timing.

When the waterfall shows activity and there is no decodes, it means your omputers time is not accurate enough. Go to https://time.is and check your time.

Hello Neil KD9DOG back to you, please understand I am computer stupid well anyway.
The radio now transmits (Yaesu FT991A) and the operating system is 10,
CAT button turns Green and PTT turns Red and Tune the radio goes to transmit.
.When I click enable transmit it will transmit and my radio keys
My problem now is the BAND ACTIVITY window does not register anything, I have read the manual numerous times and watched numerous you tube to no avail.
Ideas?

Hi,
 
When the band is open 50.323 is still relatively quiet here in Europe. So why do op's persist with 50.313 and then moan that there's to much QRM to work the DX.
 
In IARU region 1 all MGM "should" be above 50.300, according to the band plan.
 
But op's like stability and still use 50.230 for JT6M and 50.280 for MSK144.
 
FT4 is on 50.318, and Q65 is 50.305.

50.323 is for international FT8 QSOs, and not for local or national QSOs. Much less QRM when working weaker DX.

Some of these watering holes were set up to experiment (and thus not cause interference to other non-compatible modes). It was a matter of two things, courtesy and concentration of resources.

50.275  was selected for Q65-30A initially. Some 15A is being done there too.
50.235  was selected for Q65-120E qrp operation
(neither mode can copy the other, will generate mutual interference)

For experimental modes like Q65, watering holes represent the best possible sharing of resources and reducing interference.

The operation of 50.303 is an entirely different matter. It was set up and chosen by the Rovers. It has proven very effective. It's their trip and they can operate wherever they like. It is NOT a new watering hole, it is a specifically chosen freq just for the Grid Expedition, independent of mode. That is why during the expedition, you might see MSK144, FT8 and Q65 all on 303 at various times.

So, if someone sees digital signals on the waterfall that they cannot decode, try another mode.

We are wasting a LOT of spectrum by spacing these watering holes so far
apart. There's no good reason why, for example, those three dial
frequencies couldn't have been spaced 3 kHz apart. And there's no good
reason they couldn't have been a LOT lower in the band. A big part of
why FT8 killed CW on 6M, at least here in the States, is that spectrum
monitors like the Electraft P3 can display more more than 200 kHz
bandwidth. With JT65 much lower in the band, we could easily monitor CW
activity; with FT8 at 50.313, we cannot. That's in addition to the 10 dB
advantage of FT8 over CW for weak signal work.

I live on 6M during E-skip season chasing grids, but I haven't had a CW
QSO on 6M for four years. And the last guy I worked on CW took 3 years
and 3 QSLs, with SASE, to get a card in return for his rare grid.

I think you should install the new GA version 2.4.0 as you are actually now 2 releases behind. There are some bugs fixed relating to this sort of problem so it would be better to assess it again with the fixed code.

The Grid Expedition of N4EME is listening on 303 and will use FT8, MSK144 and Q65 as needed. They listen on 303 all the time with an SDR , while operating on 260 or 313 with appropriate modes.

If they hear someone calling on 303, they will migrate and tx on 303, in the mean time, they are working on the base operating freq for the mode in use.

So, on 303, you might hear MSK144, FT8 and Q65, all depending on what is happening at the moment. This is a VERY clever means of maximizing their availability.

I am not. Just like on all other bands and modes, the definition of a QSO is the ack of receipt of two pieces if information from the other party. When I copy RRR or RR73, I log the QSO, because I've already sent R plus a report, and the fact that he's sent me RRR or RR73 indicates he's copied my R-report. If he sends RR73 or R and his report again, it tells me he hasn't copied my R, so I send it again. And again, if he keeps sending. He can log it when he's satisfied. When he stops sending his report, I log it. If he doesn't, we don't have a QSO. It's that simple. And for skeds, like online, it's perfeectly legit for the guy getting RRR or RR73 to say so online, like Slack or ON4KST or Ping Jockey. This is VERY common practice when working grid expeditions.

Jim,

this issue is about operating with a /P or other type 1 prefix or suffix in JT65 mode (same applies to JT9 and JT4 modes), the defect means it is not possible to send a signal report, RRR or 73 message unless the generated messages are manually edited. The defect is a regression that happened some considerable time ago and it needs to be fixed, which is what I  am doing.

One way would be to look on PSKreporter

 

Set it up for 6m, anyone, and any mode, and then hover over a few contact in the map and look at the frequency see if you can find anything pops up, I suspect its FT8, as the main 6m freq is 50.313
