FT8 Transmit Timeout/WSJT X Radio Connection
This is a 2 part Question and issue!
1st Question- I have WSJT X/FT8 working with my Flex 6600. I am able to fully function WSJT X. If I have not transmitted for a bit of time (???) WSJT X will still key the radio but there will be no RF out! The only way to rectify this is to restart WSJT X. Once I restart the software all is back to normal. I have looked thru the setup both in SmartSDR and WSJT X. Am I missing something? Is there a timeout feature I have missed?
2nd Question- In setting up WSJT X I followed Mike's (VA3MW) setting up WSJT X youtube video.
Radio Rig Control
Rig - FlexRadio 6xxx, Network Server - 127.0.0.1:5003, PTT Method-RTS and Com 9. I test CAT and PTT and all is good. I also have created in SmartSDR CAT a TCP port using Port 5003, Slice A, Auto-switch is Enabled. EVERYTHING works GREAT! HOWEVER when relaunching the WSJT X program it switches my settings on the WSJT end to - Ham Radio Deluxe, Network Server - 127.0.0.1:7831, PTT Method CAT. Everything WORKS here Great as well.
I am just not understanding why this is switching. I have nothing setup in my SmartSDR CAT for Port 7831 or Ham Radio Deluxe. (I have in the past used Ham Radio Deluxe)
I thought that possibly my issue was using Slice Master to Launch WSJT X, but it does not matter whether I use Slice Master or just Launch WSJT X manually it still does this. Like I said all still works GREAT! Except my TX timeout issue (1st Question). These programs are also all working greatly with Log4OM logging software and Grid Tracker.
I have searched the community and did not locate any info on this topics... I hope I am not repeating something already posted!
Any suggestions or fixes would be appreciated!
