FT8 problem on 60 meters

edited August 2020 in Third-Party Software
I'm running FT8 on all bands except 60 meters. Using a 6500 and latest version of wsft-x. I have
looked at a lot of post about problems.  When I go to 60M the freq on wsjt-x turns red and will
not allow transmit.  I copy fine.  Any ideas.

    Try setting the high cut to 2500

    Yes, 60M bandwidth must be less than 2.8 Khz so limit your TX bandwidth as necessary.

    Changing the high or low cut has no effect.  I have tried everything that has been in all the posts 
    that I have read.

    turn off 'split operations' in wsjtx....

    this will keep wsjtx fro sending a change freq command during transmit

    Go to File>settings>Frequencies, right click on an entry and insert the 60M frequency.
    This is not a default supplied frequency setting.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
