followed the instructions from Michael in the FT8 How to guide for setting up, when I switch the mode to DIGIU, I get a long error message, something  about  Global error name not defined, something about an error in line 921, cant get to stay on the screen long enough to snip it....looks like there are 3 or 4 line errors from wsjtx.py file....

Hi Jamie,

That sounds like a good one.  Please send an email to the address in the Slice Master splash screen and include a zip of your Slice Master config folder...  just navigate to

    C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Local\K1DBO

then right-click on slice-master and select 'Send to\Compressed (zipped) folder'.  This will create a zip file that you can attach to your message. The logs from the config folder should tell me what's going on.

Thanks Don, I now have it receiving fine, but cant transmit....its my understanding slicemaster should configure all the stuff needed to transmit....but I cant get the ENABLE button to turn on, and when I try WSJT-X comes back with a cat config error

update, after testing CAT and PTT in the WSJT-X software, the enable button works, the rig goes into transmit, but nothing going out over the air....I can see the signal in the DAX contraol panle window on the TX stream, but no tones being transmitted....
