Running win7 and 1.5.1.152 and 6300 will not transmit via ptt or vox on 60 meters. In cw mode I get a carrier when the tune button is engaged. I don't have any problems on any other band. I have tried rebooting the computer and the flex but no help.

When you cannot transmit, you can place your mouse cursor over the grayed out TX icon in the bottom right hand corner (which probably says "Not Ready") and a TX interlock message will appear telling you why you cannot transmit.  I suspect it says Out-of-Band, meaning that based on your slice frequency and the transmit filter bandwidth, you are outside of the designated 60m channel.

Gentlemen there is no fool like an old fool and it appears I fit in that category.. My problem was a SIMPLE matter transmit bandwidth being too wide.. Thanks for all the comments and sorry to have taken up your time.
