Running Flex 6500 with V1.11.12 + 70 cm Transverter +WSJT-X V10.0

Just wanted to test the EME capabilities.

WSJT-X has an EME Echo Mode - Doppler Tracking included.
It requires Flex6500 Split Operations.
 
All configured as of the manual but receive a Rig Control Error:



I guess I'm not allone with this challenge . . .
Any idea . . . ?

Thank you !

Hi Tim, I found an easy fix. WSJT has a "fake" mode and that does what I wanted.

But . . . another challenge arrived.
It looks like that WSJT doesn't decode signals > 20db with the Flex6500. With my old analog Rig it decodes -28 without any issue. 
And I tried on 70cm and 2m with different transverters - just to check if the HF part is causing it.
After all my test it looks like that the 6500 "absorbs" the small signals.
Any idea  . . . ?
