Good morning "D"

The other way round this is to use "Fake It" setting in WSJTX Radio Settings which basically means your rig only uses a single VFO. I find it easier as it can save you having to manually change rig settings when switching different software, voice, or CW.

You should also investigate the use of the "Data/Pkt" mode in the Radio Settings which works well on the IC-7100 and IC-7200 so is likely to on your IC-7300. It should put your rig into the correct mode for both Rx and Tx.

- In WSJT-X, when I double click on a CQ in the queue, then Enable Tx, the IC-7300 transmits, but all I hear is a steady tone that sounds just like when I select the Tune button... It doesn't sound as if there's any FSK modulation going on
- Also, when transmitting, the ALC on the IC-7300 is indicating '40'.  I've read that the levels should be adjusted so that the ALC is just barely being 'tickled', but when I reduce the Pwr level in WSJT-X  or  reduce the sound output level to the IC-7300 in Windows, the ALC reading doesn't change at all; it just stays on '40'

Hi ’Sky’

Clearly your rig is not in analog data or SSB mode. It could be in FSK mode of some other full carrier transmission mode and PTT action just starts transmission and there is no FSK keying from PC. You may user Tx monitor in your rig to hear that audio is going into the rig, I assume that IC-7300 has a Tx monitor capability. Also rig power control should at least affect to output power and possibly to ALC value. The latter depends on rig I have learned.
That’s about all I can guess as I am not a happy owner IC-7300 and you have not revealed how you have connected IC-7300 to PC and more importantly settings in your rig and wsjt-x Radio and Audio settings. I don’t know whether IC-7300 requires special drivers for USB connection, but if you are decoding signals it should be ok.

I'm totally new to this stuff, but I think I'm slowly picking up a general idea as to what the software is doing and what FT-8 is all about...

Anyway, haven't been able to make a contact yet.  Here's the deal: 

- I have a cheap HP laptop with Windows 10 & an IC-7300... Have reached the stage where it looks like WSJT-X is receiving & decoding okay...
- Using Dimension 4 to help with any possible sync issues.
- I'm monitoring the RF output of the IC-7300 with another HF receiver so I can listen and watch it on the scope
- In WSJT-X, when I double click on a CQ in the queue, then Enable Tx, the IC-7300 transmits, but all I hear is a steady tone that sounds just like when I select the Tune button... It doesn't sound as if there's any FSK modulation going on

If the 7100, 7300, and so on is configured like this then the mic will not be "hot".
You must be in USB-D mode

Here are the main settings in the Connectors menu.
ACC/USB Output Select,   AF
ACC/USB AF Level,   30%
ACC MOD Level,   50%
USB MOD Level,   20%
DATA OFF MOD,   MIC,ACC
DATA MOD,   USB
In the CIV Sub Menu---
CIV Baud Rate,   19200
CIV Address,   94 (default for 7300)
CIV Transceive,   OFF
CI-V USB Echo Back,   ON

Also this,  Mode, Data/Pkt  <<<Important>>> in WSJT-X settings.
This setting tells the 7300 to switch to the USB-D mode otherwise
if left in the USB setting then NO USB-D or equiv type mode.

Note the DATA OFF MOD and the DATA MOD settings.

VOX only operates via the MIC jack input.

Chuck,

 

The reason the FTdx-5000 is rated at 200 watts PEP SSB and 50 watts on AM is at 50 watts AM the PEP power level is also 200 watts PEP, assuming the rig actually upward modulates 100%.  It has nothing to do with derating the radio from a duty cycle standpoint.  The rig may well have a duty cycle rating, but it has nothing to do with SSB vs. AM.  In the AM days of the past, a carrier input of 1 KW was 4 KW PEP, and with class C 70% efficient was 3 KW PEP output.

 

The 5000 MP MK V in class A has an outstandingly clean signal.  Here is a screen capture from W6XX (now SK). Note these values are in the more conservative dBc method. Add 6 dB to both values for the PEP method used in advertisements and ARRL testing.  Note the amazing lack of higher order IMD products. 

 

<image002.png>

 

Some of the early Yaesu class A rigs did blow up in class A.  That eventually got fixed.  The cooling fan makes much more noise in class A due to the low efficiency of class A.  The trade-off is a super clean signal if you run no ALC.  (W6XX fixed the ALC in his Mk V.)

 

Today it appears most people running WSJT X are running big power with a linear amp. This past weekend on 14,074 kHz my S meter was consistently at S9+20 dB.  It appears few FT8 operators are running 50 watts. 

 

It would be desirable if every rig published a duty cycle rating for each mode.  I would guess a 50% duty cycle is a reasonable starting point absent data from the manufacturer.

I take my cue from two things for power output. One is the derating used by

the radio manufacturer for the radio when running AM vs SSB.  My rig is

rated for 200 Watts PEP SSB by Yaesu. For AM they specify 50 Watts. That

to me indicates that the safe upper end for high duty cycle SSB is going to

be about 50 Watts for my radio.  Also on the rig here there is an option to run

the finals in a very linear mode (Class A) as opposed to acceptable AB mode.

Running in the ultra linear mode as it is called results in the SSB output being

capped at 70 Watts PEP.  Since the extra 20 watts will be less than about 1.5

dB increase in power it hardly seems worth it to risk the health of the finals.

I will venture a guess that the repair bill for replacing the finals will be around

$450 - $600. Heap on that the shipping costs will be about $120.00 each way.

I will opt for the 4:1 derating and set the max threshold at 50 watts "for the rig"

when using digital modes.

 

Other than the occasional "Oops" of forgetting to reduce the power out, I cap

the RF out at 25 watts. I will generally use less power if PSKReporter and/or

HamSpots is returning reports of my Signal Strength being better than -5 dB.

The easy way is to configure the radio for the DATA mode.
Using the DATA mode correctly will disconnect the mic input
so that it will not be "hot" in this case.
The DATA mode causes the audio switching from the mic input
to the rear either via the ACCY or DATA or USB input to go
directly to the modulation section.

The microphone must be still attached to the radio. My Yaesu did that and
I ran in circles for a couple of days trying to figure out what was going on.
In my case I was using the back port which was a 600 ohm input and in
parallel with the front panel microphone. SO I disconnected the microphone
and things worked.
