Robert,

One last thing. Make sure you don't have any CAT sharing issues. Only one program at a time can access the enhanced COM port, unless you are using a program such as Win4YaesuSuite, which can have multiple programs running by using virtual COM ports.

Hope all goes well.

Robert,

I had a chance to get in front of my rig. I have a few last things for you to try. I have a Yaesu FTDX-3000. I have my menu settings as such:
#67 DATA MODE (PSK/OTHERS) - set to OTHERS
#75 DATA IN SELECT (DATA/USB) - set to USB

I believe the analogous 991 menu items are #62 and #72.

Please make sure to set these as in the case for my 3000.

Also, I have WSJT-X set as such:
Data Bits Default
Stop Bits Default
Handshake Default
PTT Method CAT
Mode Data/Pkt
Split Fake It

Good Luck,

the Marathon is one example.. it promotes dxing and each year will start over.

so for the WORKED BEFORE POLICE.. please concider working hams.. I understand if you get a fella that calls you every time he
see you.. being from IDAHO I get it. But I will check to see if that ham calling me is new to 2022 and will work him..
I work about all of them anyway.. never know if he lost his log or something.

Hi Dan,

I don’t think RR73 can be interpreted as a signal report. Signal reports are a single R plus a possibly signed number.

RR73 can be interpreted as a grid square, and I presume is encoded as such. However RR73 is in the Arctic Ocean north of the Bering Strait, so extremely unlikely to be used as such.

Okay. I'm fine with that. If I have to manually resend a 73 that's ok. The tenants of ham radio does dictate that we should be involved and not run a fully automated station anyway.

So here's what I've got out this entire conversation:
1. The QSO is legitimately over after both parties receive a signal report.
2. Sending a 73 as a post report message is just a courtesy. One I appreciate FWIW.
3. Sending RR73 is a gray area. It could be a 73 or just a signal report, or it could be both.
4. Sending an Rxx and then in a follow up message sending 73 is definitely a finished QSO with a courteous termination.
5. If participating in a contest, forgo the courtesy in favor of saving time.

Hi Dan,
I can only consider, what designers were thinking.
First of all that automata don't have memory. So, if it would send a "73 message_2" to a received "73 message_1", then that will happen also at the reception of "73 message_2" and another "73 message" will be sent...
Another reason is that the QSO as such is completed, when both operators have received a report and confirmed the reception of the report. RRR or RR73 is the confirmation and there is no need to confirm the confirmation in the minimum QSO. If you don't receive the confirmation RRR or RR73, then you will resend your R-xx report(/confirmation). That mechanism is used in contest messages without 73.
If you want to send a polite 73 to inform that you have received the confirmation, you need to do it manually.

Dan,
I disagree a bit how the QSO is completed. IARU has defined that also the signal reports needs to be confirmed, see https://www.amateurradio.com/what-is-a-valid-qso/.
In wsjt-x that confirmation is R-xx or RR73 or RRR depending on the originator. So in your list the second step should be RR73 or RRR for a smooth QSO as most FT8 operators prefer it and the automated process supports that.
If you replace the RR73 or RRR by 73, then some operators are confused and may not log the QSO. Of course you may do it as you wish, I only indicate preferred way, hi!
The use of 73 after receiving RR73 and especially RRR is another dividing conflict.

Robert,
One possibility is that Windows has in its wisdom decided to disallow audio from wsjt-x.
You should check in Windows audio settings that wsjt-x is using correct device and it is not switched off.
The radios in the dropdown menu are for CAT control and don't affect to the audio path.
I assume that you have proper Yaesu drivers installed and working for USB connection.

Well I tried using FT4 as well as choosing a couple of other Yaesu radios in the drop down 'Radio' tab and still no luck. I'm thinking my radio is broken from transmitting at 100 Watts into an end fed Chameleon antenna (CHA LWEFS) with no counterpoise and not enough ferrite. However I do want to point out I did do everything Chameleon said to do in the instructions. Others need to be careful in this area. Thanks for all the help Reino and everyone that contributed!

I completely agree with you.

I would only add that if I receive a signal report only, I still submit the QSO to LOTW and eQSL. If the other ham also submits it then we both considered it a valid QSO and we both get credit. If the other Ham does not submit it, then I don’t worry about it and move on.

Robert,

I don’t think that would harm your radio at all.

There is protection circuitry if the VSWR is too high and it should protect itself.

I was setting up a new Surface Go 3 laptop with my FT-991a and it worked at first, then later it quit working. So, it would say it was transmitting but it wasn’t transmitting. Sometimes it was transmitting but there was no audio out to the radio.

I’ve been following this thread for a couple weeks.

There is a button in WSJT-X for TUNE. When you press that button, does the FT-991a change to TX mode?

Best regards,
Steve de KC5NK

Hi Bob,

As I have written before on this forum – when starting the PC (at least my PC with updated Windows-10), after the time-keeping program «Dimension 4» has started, it must be opened, and «Settings» in the menu must be activated – see the button with a red arrow below.

[ cid:image002.gif@... ]

Then a new window appears, where you must give permission for «Dimension 4» to make changes to your PC.

This procedure has to be made every time my Windows-10 PC is restarted – else «Dimension 4» will not do its job.

If this procedure doesn’t help, I may suggest trying another time keeping program – the program «BktTimeSync» has also worked fine for me – and each time the program is manually called upon, Windows «automagically» asks if you give permission for the program to make changes to your PC.
