6400M and FT8

I’ll be using a 6400M and want to setup for FT4/8. The PC will be running WSJTX. What else is required at the PC end not counting something like Dimension4? Is the only cable required between PC and the Flex Ethernet? Is SmartSDR required? (I’m not interested in remote ops). Is there info somewhere on all the 6400M settings required?

    You don't need SSDR, however, you need the Smart SDR DAX and Smart SDR CAT which are installed with/ SSDR on tour computer.

    The best way to set up WSJT-X is to search You Tube and follow a video, there are several. The following video demonstrates the step by step set up of WSJT-X, the Flex DAX and the Flex CAT software packages:


    You can then control the 6400M with the front panel or SSDR or both if you have multi-flex.

    You Tube has other video presentations which cover N1MM, FLDIGI, MMTTY and others.

    Hope this gets you started, its not hard with the you tube stuff.
