do you have the 991a audio drivers installed?. I may have missed that answer.   You  should be selecting the audio codec, and I think someone mentioned, give permission to allow wsjt to use the microphone

make sure you had restarted the PC before trying to restart the wsjt/jtalert, or whatever you are trying to use.

OK, after fighting this for days, I finally grabbed a ferrite and wrapped my USB cable (never had an issue with this cable with previous setups) just in case this was an RFI issue:

Absolutely no effect whatsoever.  Continual sound input error dialogs. The Microphone privacy switch is not an issue as I posted earlier.

So, I set up an elderly Toshiba Satellite running Windows 7, hooked it up with the same cable same driver, same software, same place in the shack, and it's been running for 7 hours w/o a hitch.

The computer is a brand-new Asus VivoBook 17 K712EA, and I never dreamed that I would have any issues with it. I've got a limited amount of time to return it.  I'd really appreciate feedback.

I see this on several clusters.  I think it infers cw by the bandplan, not the mode.  an example would be the fox/hound at 7056, right in the CW portion.  it is just like when the EU were transmitting below 7.100   .    assumed cw, when it was either rtty or SSb

as long as I know the regular frequencies, i will qsy in wsjt, and not from the cluster, so my radio is in the correct mode

Even some logging programs do not recognize, the if a manual entry is on 14.074, mine think its cw (on first log entry)

Apply a little logic.. If you are running a pip-squeak antenna or power (or both), you should expect to not be heard every transmission. Be prepared to use RRR on a normal basis. I you regularly have to do repeats, you should assume the same. If it is a very strong station, you may be able to go back to RR73. Most HF seems to use and only require RR73. On the other hand, if you’re running VHF with a non-local, RR73 should not be assumed. If you’re on MSK144, please don’t use RR73. By definition, MS is hit and miss, mostly miss.

Hi Neil,

as far as I know the DX Cluster protocol does not include the mode of the spot unless the spotter includes that information in the notes. Therefore it is down to the client receiving the spots to interpret what the mode might be, possibly from the spotted frequency.

locked WSJT-X Decoded station spots not spread out along frequency graph #decode

reg williams
 

I have a TS870 with WSJT-X with no problems operating for over 2 years. Well working the recent dxpeditions over the last few days i have on occasion used fox /hound mode.This has always been returned to normal mode operating when a station has been worked.
Today I switched on the radio to continue working stations and noticed the stations being received and decoded were very close together on the frequency graph ranging from approx 0Khz -1500Khz only. I have checked that all the settings normally used are correct. with the software and radio. I only use the radio for operating with WSJT-X only and not adjusted any of the controls since setting up 2 years ago. It would only  have been done  inadvertently. I think the problem is related to the radio settings as I have used MSHV to see if the same problem exists on that software, and it does.
I have been advised that my frequency could be off a bit. I think this is okay because the frequencies i am using are set in WSJT-X so all I need to do is click on the chosen frequency which then tunes the radio to that frequency where I am able to decode the stations with no problem..
Filter Bandwidth is set to off which is the default setting for digital operation.
Any help to solve this problem would be appreciated. Just had to happen for my last day to work the dxepeditions.
Many thanks.
Reg

Hey Bill!!

THANKS.
Just added two new countries on 12m AFTER I disabled the RR73

What I saw was me repeating RRR and after 3 to 6 times THEY replied with the 73 and my program logged it.

No wonder you guys put in the caveat, in the manual, that suggests only use RR73 if you are SURE the other station will have copied you!

Hello Bill.
Thanks for taking the time.

Welllll ...I have no a'priori knowledge that he isn't going to decode the RR73.
O in the haste of battle, namely an open band where seemingly all the DX lads over there arer using the abbreviated format, I opt for the same.

It'sa crapshoot, as we say in colonies.

Sometimes this Omnirig, they followed right on thru to their final 73 .
Many other times they kept repeating R-03, for example.

So, with respect to that scenario, are you then suggesting it's tactically better for me to, IMMEDIATE the decode of their repeated TX3, that revert IMMEDIATELY to RRR; send it, and keep that format thereafter??

Then, in addition, are we assuming that the bands are known to be jammed up with traffic, so I should dispense thereafter with the abbreviated RR73 format?? Makes good sense in retrospect now.'Cuz that has happened so very much to me in the last few days on 12, with my pip-squeak transmitted power.

Thanks for the timely tip.

. Double-click the Tx 4 message to switch it to the RRR format message and the QSOs will proceed as you wish.

If you reenable TX after sending RR73, the program should recognise that the QSO partner repeated R+rpt and so send RR73 again. At least it does for me.

I think you have missed the point here, the software does it’s own thing regardless, no interference needed.
The issue is that some stations who are not using the ‘Hold Frequency’ feature call the CQ station on their frequency, complete the QSO, and then proceed to call CQ themselves on that frequency instead of moving off.

There is nothing wrong with responding to a CQ station on their frequency so long as you remember to QSY when the QSO is over. If ‘Hold Frequency’ is set you don’t need to.

On phone you wouldn’t start calling CQ on the frequency already held by a station when your QSO is over.

I set my WSJT-X software for FAKE IT or SPLIT to control the K3S radio.  It really makes no difference in my case.   When I answer a CQ, I double click on the calling station and let the software do the rest.    When I call CQ, I choose what I see as a clear frequency on my waterfall and call.    When a station calls me, maybe on my frequency or a different frequency, again I let the software do the rest.    When I choose to use Hold TX Freq that is done when the band is crowded and I find a clear frequency on my receiving end.    

Frankly, I don't see that any of these methods is a massive benefit or a hindrance.   It is just an enjoyable hobby and working stations on FT-8 or FT-4 is more like shooting birds in a cage.  So easy.
