Well, can’t seem to change that to USB on channel B unless I shift the frequency to 20m.  The TX500 has a Digital mode that is supposed to be optimized for digital modes.  Right now I have the CAT cable connected to the lap top with a USB connection, the Rem/Data audio cable open and the MIC/SP connected to the lap top.  It seems to be transmitting, but no receive.

Ok I thought that was channel B, I’ll reset it. Thanks!

Ok thank you.  There are 3 ports on the Tx500, mic/spkr; rem/data/ and cat.  I have tried all three with no luck.  The radio mode is digital and I am on 7074.

Hi William,

do you have CAT connection between your rig and PC, if yes then is it working?

What option have you selected for "Settings->Radio->PTT Method"?

Have you set up your Tx audio levels correctly? See this pinned post for a recipe for doing that:

That’s better from audio point of view - that green bar is a good thing something is being received from radio. 

Check time as other have said it takes a 2nd or two - as long as it +-1 second good to go - worry about automatically setting time till later as you will get lots of use this / use that  / this is better - get basic decodes working first.

It can’t be clock at this stage - the input graph (bottom left) is not showing anything - no audio is reaching WSJT-X.

Mark - check and double check the audio connections, the ‘Audio’ settings on WSJT-X and the ‘Audio’  settings in the Mac. The input graph should (MUST) show something before you will get a decode.

Make sure the clock in the computer has an accuracy of +/-1 second or better.  Probably should be using an external time reference.

Still no luck receiving anything. It looks like it is transmitting but nothing received. I even turned off the transmit to just monitor and still nothing.

I think that’s backwards, the audio output of your computer (Sabrent ‘headphone’ jack) should go to the audio input of your radio (microphone). And vice versa. And you may need some padding to get the levels right. 

When you hit the ‘tune’ button do you get RF power out of your radio?  (And is your clock within a few hundred ms of realtime as measured by https://time.is ?)
