Use Stream Deck to set band within WSJT-X

Is there a simple way to change bands within WSJT-X using Stream Deck? Changing the band within WSJT-X also sets the proper frequency for the mode. It does not appear that there is a keyboard shortcut for this feature.

Thanks, Ron

    Use FRStack with Stream Deck to send REST commands.

    You can use the Stream Deck to set radio mode to DIGIU and frequency of radio to a particular band’s FT8 frequency. So you can create a button that says FT8 that brings up a new layer in FT8 layer (15 new buttons on a 15 button Stream Deck). Then create a button for each band. Example set mode to DIGIU and frequency to 3.573 for 80, then another would set mode to DIGIU and frequency to 7.074 for 40, and so on.

    WSJT-X will follow the radio’s frequency change. In WSJT-X when you select a new band it is send those commands to the radio, so doing it from the Stream Deck is accomplishing the same thing.

    One more thing, stack necessary commands to set RX bandwidth to 3 kHz ,TX bandwidth to 100-3000, and DAX TX on.
