After reading the post about ALE software acting strange, I’m wondering if my JT65 situation is related? As N2RJ noted, JT65 uses USB on all bands. Using 1.9.x I’ve experienced 2 different irregularities. My 6500 was on 40m CW. After starting the latest version of JT65, I selected 40m. The radio switched to the JT65 frequency on 40 but stayed in CW mode. Last night, I was on 20M SSB. I started JT65 and selected 40M. My 6500 switched to the 40m JT65 frequency, but switched to LSB.
Is JT65 supposed to send the CAT commands to put the radio into SSB / USB? Is this an option that I’ve overlooked?
One point that may be relevant. I’ve never been able to get JT65 working correctly if I use any radio profile EXCEPT the Kenwood TS-2000.
