I was trying to ask the original poster , who mentioned they were having trouble with wsjt and flrig....  he was having trouble with json files, but posted to wsjt group.  maybe he posted to wrong group..

Hi Gene,

 

Just a snapshot here in Finland 24 h on 20m band almost 150 000 messages.

 

High end is limited by my rig and wsjt-x waterfall setting. I would say quite a flat distribution.

1)  A lot of DX stations seem to prefer below 1KHz.  Also Fox/Hound mode (also usually DX) requires them to stay below 1KHz.  So some people try and keep that free for the DX stations.
2) As mentioned a lot of radios don't work well close to the band edges.  If you stay away from the edges you don't have to worry about that.  Your radio may work close to the edge but by doing so you are cutting out a lot of contacts from people who's radio doesn't work well there.
3) If you are trying to work a DX station it helps to lower the base frequency by 300-500Hz. This now means that the top end of the FT8 band is no longer available.

All of these combine to make it more likely that there will be fewer stations on the high and low ends.

Nothing wrong with your choice and I can see where it will help you make contacts by lowering the competition.  I can't imagine any rational person complaining about a QRP station operating there.  1500 Watts?  That's a little different.  Of course this is ham radio.  An assumption of rationality may be a bit naive.

I'm guessing you are probably using Data/Pkt mode in WSJT-X.
Many rigs have limited bandwidth.  Some can adjust that bandwidth.

What rig do you have?
What are your bandwidth settings?

Mike W9MDB

Hi Marty,

one reason may be that users who do not have CAT control of their rigs
are following our advice to use Tx audio offsets above 1500 Hz. This
ensures that any unwanted audio harmonics are greatly attenuated by the
rig's Tx IF filter. Of course they can elect to tune their VFO dial down
1 or 1.5 kHz if they wish to get to those lower frequencies.

Simples, you are transmitting an audio tome on an SSB transmitter, the
bandwidth of the SSB transmitter is roughly 300Hz to 3Khz, anything outside
that will not be transmitted or severely attenuated. Your receiver has an
audio response to fit with the SSB TX response.. OK ?

Dave,
All I use with my 590SG is the USB cable.
I start N3FJP first then start WSJT and they talk, control the 590, do a QRZ lookup & log each contact.
No DB9 cable used at all and no ARCP software used.
