This was a big topic back a few months ago.  In my case, the Flex folks suggested it had to do with latency in the driver interrupt code.  Do a search for "latency" and/or " WSJT decoding stopping".  In my case, after weeks of sleuthing, and a lot of watching "Latency Monitor" results, I found that Dell (my machine is a Dell XPS) had loaded a lot of 'customer experience' monitoring software that ran in the background.  There were/are lots of references to this issue if you do a more global search for sound recording glitches related to latency in the drivers getting out of hand.  I removed all of the Dell related entities from the Control Panel, rebooted, and haven't had a fault since.  I can't really swear definitively that this was the cause, since I was also making a few other changes (like reverting to a prior version of WIndows (I have since gone back to the current version), disabling some plug and play drivers (but not all).  But at least one other person followed those steps and fixed his problem as well.

BTW, I got reamed for suggesting that perhaps WSJTX could be made a bit more robust in the face of these anomalies, so I wouldn't suggest pointing the finger in that direction!

Does anyone know what rig(s) the TI9A team is using? 

Having seen this issue a couple of days ago, albeit in standard FT8 (ie. not F & H) mode, with the G3 using an FTDX101 I wonder if there's something about that rig that doesn't co-operate correctly when WSJT-X is sending CAT commands in the 'Rig' split option.  Like you, I'd never seen the behaviour previously with either standard or F & H FT8 mode so perhaps it's something that only happens when using 'Rig' split with certain rigs.

Hi.

The tune function in WSJTx, allows you to "tune" & adjust the entire TX path.  The rig "Tune" function (i think that is what your asking) only tunes the internal (or external) ATU.

They are not the same thing.

If you could change that button to send a custom command to tune the rig/ATU, you'd still have to set the TX audio levels anyway.

Plus, WSJTx can remember it's settings per band, as can the KX3.

Or did I misunderstand your wishes?

WSJT-X can be configured to use the Commander transceiver control component of the freeware DXLab Suite. Commander's Main window can
be configured to provide 8 or 16 buttons, each of which send a sequence of CAT commands to your transceiver with appropriate pacing.
The functionality is described here:

<https://www.dxlabsuite.com/commander/Help/CommandSequences.htm>

A library of such sequences that have been developed and uploaded by DXLab users is available:

<https://www.dxlabsuite.com/dxlabwiki/SetupUserSequence>

If a sequence that accomplishes the function you need is not already available, you employ a downloaded function as a starting
point. The library contains several Tune functions for the K3; modifying one of them to work with your KX3 simply requires replacing
the K3 command with SWT44;

For more information, see

<https://www.dxlabsuite.com/dxlabwiki/InstallingDXLabApplications>

<https://www.dxlabsuite.com/dxlabwiki/GettingStarted>

<https://www.dxlabsuite.com/dxlabwiki/TranceiverControlElecraft>

When you have Commander controlling your K3, then on the Radio tab of the WSJT-X Settings window,

1. set the Rig selector to "DXLab Suite Commander"

2. set the "PTT Method" panel to CAT

3. set the "Split Operation" panel to "Fake It"

Hi Adrian,

there's no support for arbitrary CAT commands in WSJT-X, but you can achieve a similar effect by using the Hamlib rig control server which allows both WSJT-X and other CAT clients to do CAT communications with your rig. The server and a command line client are included with WSJT-X in the bin directory in the installation directory (by default C:\WSJT\wsjtx\bin) on MS Windows.

Start the rigctld server from a command prompt like this:

C:\WSJT\wsjtx\bin\rigctld-wsjtx -m 245 -r COMn -s baud-rate

where COMn is the COM port used for CAT and baud-rate is the baud rate used.

Change "Settings->Radio->Rig" in WSJT-X to "Hamlib NET rigctl". At this point you can verify that WSJT-X CAT control is working correctly.

You are now able to use the rigctl-wsjtx command line tool to also send CAT commands to you rig, for example you might use this command:

C:\WSJT\wsjtx\bin\rigctl-wsjtx -m 2 w SWT44;

You can put this command into a batch script and make a Desktop shortcut so you can execute it any time with a mouse double-click.

Took another look at the screen caps I mentioned, and they do reflect an exact 1500 hz shift .. my bad.     Just weird .. have not observed that before with any other DXPedition using F/H mode.

The two signal idea was just that, speculation based on having never seen this occurrence previously.

Neil:

The 'frequency shifts' on the TI9A signals that I (and a friend) observed at around 1500z today definitely didn't appear to be the result of two separate transmissions; at times they were running up to five F & H streams and *all* the streams shifted upwards by 1500Hz on every alternate Tx cycle - this was exactly the same as observed (on a single signal) by the G3 referred-to in my previous posting.

Also, I can't imagine why the TI9A team would want to be transmitting two separate FT8 signals spaced only 1500Hz apart on 20m this afternoon.

According to info on QRZ Now, they are running two rigs with FT8, I suspect what you're seeing are two separate operators working the band based on screen caps of the interchanges that I've seen.   One with F/H, and the other using regular FT8.

Neil:

The 'frequency shifts' on the TI9A signals that I (and a friend) observed at around 1500z today definitely didn't appear to be the result of two separate transmissions; at times they were running up to five F & H streams and *all* the streams shifted upwards by 1500Hz on every alternate Tx cycle - this was exactly the same as observed (on a single signal) by the G3 referred-to in my previous posting.

The upward frequency shift of 1500Hz on TI9A's signal on every alternate Tx cycle would also explain why stations weren't receiving their RR73 message from TI9A - unless the receiving station had the 'Rx All Freqs' box ticked, the RR73 transmission from TI9A on say 1775Hz instead of on 275Hz wouldn't have been displayed (or even decoded?) at the receiving end.

Finally, I can't imagine why the TI9A team would want to be transmitting two separate FT8 signals on 14085kHz spaced only 1500Hz apart on 20m this afternoon.
