Likely the Windows time service is running, and has grabbed the NTP port . . . you can use the "netstat" command to verify, and then typically just turning off "Use Internet time" in Windows will resolve this. (I think the win process is w32time . . . I'm not near anything where I can verify or give more specifics at the moment, but did verify this scenario on W10 not too long ago . . . if you search, there should be posts . . .)

Hello Mike,
yes that's correct. My rig is YAESU FTDX3000, Maybe from your perspective its ok that I should not use the FTDX5000 settings but .. with this settings all works fine. Bandswitch in WSJTx is immediately done on FTDX3000 on VFOA (as expected) and NO other button has to be pressed. If I use FTDX3000-settings in "SETTINGS" and say OK, VFOB-button is immediately switched on but is looks like that WSJTx is using VFOA for TX/RX as RX/TX from VFOA is still ON. Its very comfortable that, whenever I change band in WSJTx, FTDX3000-qrg is also switched.
I'm still wondering that noone else (except that one I've contacted and who confirmed that it must be a WSJTx-problem) who is using FTDX3000 with internal soundcard and latest version of WSJTx has such a problem.

I guess is your microphone going to the radio. Try to speak in the PC
microphone during WSJT-X tx period and see if the needle move.

Usually windows has to be configured with default to the speaker and
microphone, and WSJT-X with in and out toward radio.

Hi Scott,
That short description you gave tells to me that the audio is not going into your transmitter via the connector you are using. It may be that your rig is not configured correctly or the audio path is not connected properly.
Unfortunately you have not answered to the questions asked and it make all advice wild hits only.
This time you tell that you hear the warble tone, which is telling that wsjt-x transmits somewhere. But where are your headphone connected? The bumping the mic clearly indicates that the wsjt-x audio does not reach your transmitter, but only mic is connected to transmit path.
It would help a lot, if your tell us at least:
1. Which transceiver you are using?
2. How your PC and transceiver is connected together for audio?
3. Audio settings of the transceiver, menu setting, if the radio uses those?
4. Windows and wsjt-x audio settings may also help, although audio seems to go somewhere. WSJT-X audio device selection should not be default as that will generate other problems.
Hope this gives some hints how to we try to help you.

If you are hearing in your computer monitor or computer headset then the problem is WSJT-X and / or the computer is not configured for the appropriate audio Port / CODEC on the computer. The audio signal is not getting to the radio. a tell tail sign of this is no RF out put in your radio.

Wes Larson
 

At the time I started working with FT8 on WSJT-X I was using a Windows 7 note book, Timewave Navigator and an Elecraft K3. I had no power out. After working the audio level settings and figuring out ALC on the K3 I finally got it working that was back in March. I now have all 50 states, 6 Continents, and 54 confirmed countries with a 20 meter Moxon setting on the roof of my garage You will figure it out.

You need the correct inputs on the radio configured, front panel vs back panel audio level settings, The level settings in or on the PC, the level settings in WSJT-X and your Computer radio interface ( if your using one) and the radio. I know that multi staging of audio setting can be a little frustrating. the output of one audio point should never over drive the input to the next. This should lead to the ALC on your radio, it should be set so that it is on the verge of turning on but it should never actually turn on. On my K3 this done by adjusting the audio level at the input to my radio. either by adjusting the radios audio input or / and the Timewave Navigators output, called RF OUT. This is what worked for me.

These are all software design choices and I'm not in a position to judge. Without seeing a list of requirements I won't judge. Maybe it is a poor design choice but as I said without knowing the requirements it's hard for me to say one way or the other.

What I do know for a fact is that often what may be blamed as a software issue may be environmental. At least that's been my experience.

Eugene,

How can it be a programming challenge when there are libraries like boost::asio and Qt's QSerialPort and plenty of open-sourced and well-tested options to work with serial ports? As a software engineer, I find it sort of a dogmatic mindset that we're polling rigs that don't need to be polled in 2022 and that libraries have provided asynchronous access to serial ports for years, and more to the point that it worked fine a few revisions ago but now absolutely refuses to work on my rig that also utilizes other hardware that relies on the rs232 communications of my radio in a manner that isn't polling my rig. Why should wsjt-x care that my radio informs another device what its meter reading is? It should only care about what my radio says its frequency is, i.e., the IF command it requested. The Cat protocol on 2.5.4 and above is naive at best.

Hi Gwen,

That will be a totally different protocol than what WSJT-X FT8 currently can support! The source coding and message structures set a strong limit. Of course there are some unused messages, but POTA is not so important to all radio amateurs, hi!

If I were a POTA station and want to get others interested in it, I would send something that makes a difference to "normal" CQ message e.g. that misuse of the directed CQ! Of course I could also use a free text message, but with 13 characters it may be less informative.

OK, you said you have no output on the 40m band, what about the other bands?

What OS are you running? I skimmed through all the posts but I didn't see that.

I see you said you worked one contact on 20M, that suggests a proper configuration but it is possible you're not on USB on 40M.

I have a 706MKIIG, I do know that the 706 doesn't care what mode you're in, it'll transmit whatever you put to it on whatever mode you want unlike me 857 which requires being in a digital mode to take it from the rear input.
As such when I work anything via voice I have to disconnect my DataLink to get rid of my attenuated audio. Keeping it plugged in attenuates my voice.

Did you turn the 706 off, hold LOCK then turn the radio on and confirm your com data rate on option 35?
Also confirm your CI-V address on 34. Default is 58H
Because of the CI-V address I have to use FLRig to control my radio as most applications do not support the CI-V applications, at least from what I've found.

Basically my setup is this...
Option 34 - 58H
Option 35 - 19200
FLRig.....

If you were able to get a signal through on 20M then you should on all the other bands as well.

I would (if you can) plug into a dummy load, have your power set to low and make sure there is a meter between your dummy load and your radio so you can see if a signal is being generated.
While on USB or LSB your needle won't swing unless there is audio being sent.
You could even set your RF Power (Q1) 2 or so if the dummy load can handle it to see the needle swing more.

Hopefully this is helpful.
