Hi All

This is such a helpful group and I do not know what I would do without the support!

I am trying to configure the WSJT-X software (ver 1.6.0) for rig control with SDR 1.5.1 and Cat 1.5.1 with the Flex 6700.  I am trying desperately to understand the COM ports and CAT ports setup but an failing; I just cannot get my head around these ports and how to configure them correctly?  I have setup JT65-HF and this works fine with the flex as its using HRD to control the rig?

On another note.....Does anyone know if there is a suitable download location for FLDIGI with a version that works with the Flex SDR1.5.1 and Windows 10, 64bit?  I want to try this software but I am apprehensive as I have read many problems.

Since purchasing the Flex 6700 I am discovering digital mode for the first time!  Any suggestions would be moist welcomed?

Thanks, Nick, M0NAG

Nick, have you watched this video? For me, it opened the door and I was able to get all my digital programs to work with our new v1.6.17.

If you need add'l help let me know, and I'd be happy to help with settings.
