Installed SmartSDR 2.4.9 with no problems, SSB and CW work fine, now trying FT8. Transmit works fine in CW and SSB, as does TUNE in SSDR. TUNE in WSKT 1.9.1 switches the PTT but no power out. Receiving FT8 sigs fine, with TX ENABLE PTT switches and messages appear to be sent, but no power out at any TX Gain setting. DAX control panel says "DAX TX off" no matter how I try to set things up. Previous forum hints of using COM# with TS2000 as radio or localhost:port with TCP and Flex6xxx as radio for the TX stream do not work. Should I be using the IP of the remote 6700? Has anyone made this work? 73 John N5CQ
Was this working under a previous version? Or is this the first attempt to set this up? Also, how remote is the radio? Is it on the local network your using or are you trying to use it off the network the radio is connected to? If your not on the same network connection, then I would STRONGLY recommend using a remote session into a computer that is tied to the same network the radio is on. Mostly due to the timing sync requirements for reliable operation of FT8.
This is first attempt to do FT8. Radio is about 14 miles away as the crow files, but on same ISP as home location, network diagnostics range from good to excellent 75 ms average latency - max 200 - no issues using CW or SSB. As I understand it, remote FT8 should work in SSDR 2.4.9 without a local PC at the transmitter site, so that's what I am trying first. 73 John N5CQ
I have the same problem as N5CO. It has nothing to do with clock sync, there is absolutely no output when you key FT-8. Not even if you do a tune. As John said, works fine with tune and mox (done on SDR Smart) and with other modes, just not WSJT-X, even though it shows it is transmitting. It is the same whether you are on the local network or otherwise. I setup a hotspot on my phone to test off local network. It even shows the Flex is keyed but there is no output. WSJT-X cat and ppt test show good.
I had this same issue , I don't do remote so local . I found 3 ways to make the power out ! As I say my problem was the same WSJT-X would key but no output power . My Fix in WSJT was while in the 15 sec RX sequence, I ticked File / settings , clicked OK and the next TX seq I had power out ... Another way was to change from DIGU to CW and back to DIGU . the third was to change ANT1 to RX A and back .. I would like to know if any of these work for you , Please let me know
