    Check out this thread https://community.flexradio.com/flexradio/topics/i-am-trying-to-get-my-new-6600-working-with-wsjt-x-rx-works-cat-doest?topic-reply-list[settings][filter_by]=all While it is for an older version WSJT-X, the setup is the same. Use TCP instead of serial. Also use WSJT-X 1.9.1 until 2.0 is released. Dave wo2x

    Does it key the radio? 

    Make sure you use DigiU and in the Phone panel on right side make sure DAX is enabled. Also in DAX control panel make sure TX Stream is enabled.

    Are you running Windows 10? You might suffer from corrupted DAX drivers. Search on here for a post from Neal Campbell on how to straighten that out.

    Hi,

    Here is my setup for WSJT. My TX button in DAX does not
    turn blue when I transmit. All that shows is it is
    streaming the audio. Call CQ. Try to transmit and if you
    see the red line showing output level in the DAX TX. Go
    into transmit by hitting the MOX button on the radio or
    in the SmartSDR panel. If you then are putting out RF,
    it means only the program is not keying the radio.

    Below are my screens, your port numbers might be different,
    but one should be your PTT port. You would find the port
    numbers in your control panel.

    My ports are COM 4 and COM 5. Com 5 in cat panel is set up
    as the PTT port. Again your port numbers could be different.

    I suggest you review this page, including how to make your first contacr. This covers everything you need to know. https://physics.princeton.edu/pulsar/k1jt/wsjtx-doc/wsjtx-main-1.9.1.html Make sure your PC time is accurate. There are a few free programs that can keep the PC time accurate. I use a commercial package called Present Tense. Dave wo2x
