FT8 signal distortion



running a Flex 6400 and FT8 with DAX working properly.

If I am using my MAESTRO on the remote side (via wifi) my FT8 signal seems distorted.

Hearing it via monitor something scratchy and the signal looks a bit different within the panadapter than the signal I am sending out in the shack. But other stations always come back to me, but got the report my signal would be bad recently.

Anyone has a similar problem and know how to solve it??

    Hallo to all,

    I have the same problem,

    when Im in tx (ft8 mode) the bandwidth is very large.

    Frombrest donde, the problem occors online through an Internet Connect in and not when connected directory to the home network.

    The image shows the internet connection from my qrl.

    hi Pedro,

    How high do you have DAX TX set? Try setting DAX TX at 48 and then adjust the WSJT-X power slider all the way up. I find that adjusts to the proper level. See if that helps.

    Also your scaling on the panadapter height should be adjusted so the peak is around -50 and lowest is around -130.
