I am guessing that if your radio has a USA TURF file that it is programmed to comply with FCC rules. Basically it will only allow transmission in the dead center of the channel per FCC ruling and if you have WSJTX set to "fake it" then it will think the radio is out of band and then tx inhibit.

George, what does your Region show under the Settings-Radio Setup-Radio tab?
I know that IARU region 2 rules apply for your country, but for the 60m band local
allocations and rules apply and vary widely.

Another tip - be sure your Tx bandwidth is not set too high.  It should be no more than about 2.8 kHz -- normal SSB setting.  Otherwise Flex thinks you are going to Tx outside the (narrow) allocated band.  But it all depends on your national rules -- and what Flex has coded in its "TURF" limits. See https://community.flexradio.com/flexradio/topics/what_is_a_turf_file .

US 60m channels are only 2.8 kHz wide. I suspect you are transmitting outside of the channel bandwidth.
