have you done a reset on the frequencies tab of wsjt?

The FT897 is set in the VFO mode.
I tried to understand the responce on the spilt / non- split mode and found out that when I select the SPL mode in the FT897 I got the correct behaviour for WSJT. This even when I set the VFO-B completely outside the FT8 range (VFO-B at 7.15 MHZ at TX). It is ok when I press A=B and both VFO's are at the same freq. but I still have to select SPL otherwise WSJT shows "ooB" and 0,000 in red on the freq. display.

Tried a factory reset of the FT897 but still the same results, Works fine in SPL but ooB when in VFO-A mode...
btw, I don't have this issue when driving the FT897 directly without OmniRig,

I'm not happy with the language used in this thread earlier today and have just deleted a message with intemperate language. I will close this thread if it happens again.

I know some members have strong views on certain operating practices but that is not an excuse for lowering the standards of discussion.

I expect all views to be stated in a respectful and polite manner.

The problem may also be that they saw the RR73 and moved on. I've done so why wouldn't they once in a while in their own rushed world?

The point is it happens.

Subject: Re: [WSJTX] Working split

When working stations calling CQ I work them on their frequency and then move on to the next station calling CQ on their frequency.  I never take over a frequency.   When I call CQ I try to pick a frequency not being used or one where I see no decodes.  Therefore I working only those stations calling CQ and not calling CQ myself.

Seems that many ops have different operating schemes, some good, some not so good.  With me not being a contest operator, nor a DX chaser, I'm rarely into the fray of battle on the bands, unlike many others.  

I choose to use decode CQ ONLY and just work those on their frequency.  I see no harm in doing this and consider it to be a good neighbor policy as to band usage.  

Be critical of my operating as you wish.  But as the song goes "that's my story and I'm sticking to it"

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:

https://wsjtx.groups.io/g/main/topic/69952737

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.

are you using radio in split mode, or wsjt in 'fake it' mode.   is your radio in vfo mode ( some have to be) or memory mode

locked Re: Mode reporting #modes

Dave Garber
 

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)

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.
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.

To me it looks like you have a notch filter set to 2 kHz. I'm not saying that you have, but that's what it looks like.

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!
