Big Sur - xDAX, xCAT


Hi all,

Anyone know if xDAX and xCAT 2.0 (which appear to be the latest) work with Big Sur?

I see that SmartSDR Mac is ready and it looks like MacLoggerDX beta works with Big Sur.

I just learned long ago that major Mac OS versions often create havoc for a while with apps. I'm particularly interested in Big Sur because Marcos claims they are improving WiFi.

    I've used SmartSDR for Mac, MacLoggerDX, and xCAT, along with WSJT-X and FLDIGI with Big Sur, but haven't tested xDAX.

    I just fired up xDax, xCat and WSJTx did seem to operate ok. I didn't try to transmit just yet but I don't see why it shouldn't work. I did purchase SmartSDR for Mac and have been using it's built in FT8 tool the last few days.

    They play, but you need an update to Loopback or SoundSiphon if you use them for virtual audio device management.
