James:

Would you mind providing a few additional details?
1. Can you key the radio?
2. Did you set DAX as your Audio source in the transmit panel?
3. In the DAX control panel, did you set the "TX" so it's red?
4. Are you in DIGU / DIGL mode?
5. In the active slice, is the "DAX" indicator blue?

6. In FLDIGI, how are you setting up for PTT? (I use CAT for PTT).

That will help us figure it out.

If you haven't you might want to watch the Youtube How-To on setting up DAX.

Did you see the comment in the release notes (Known Issues, Limitations and Caveats) about having to toggle the Slice A TX off and back on to enable CAT to key the radio? If not, do that.

Toggle the TX button in the Slice A control panel (flag).

Also, in Fldigi if CAT is not connecting the QSY button will be grayed out.

I thought I was having a problem until I checked the "Use CAT Control" option in fldigi.

On the DAX control panel is the channel 1 'blue" If it isn't blue it isn't enabled.
