I noticed something very strange using FLDIGI on psk31.

I can change frequency on either the Flex or FLDIGI and they track just fine. I can change frequency from either one.

However, the waterfall frequency never changes!   I raised or lowered the frequency and the signals displayed on the waterfall do not change.

If I had been looking at a psk31 signal and then change frequency, I still see the same signal on the waterfall in the same position.

With my old radios (FT 847 or FT 2000) I could dither the frequency and see a given signal on the waterfall squiggle in time with it.

I tried to tune an Olivia signal and saw it on the Flex waterfall but not on the FLDIGI waterfall.  It does decode psk31 or CW just fine if it is in the passband of FLDIGI.
Any ideas why the waterfall acts like it is locked?

Well, it is FIXED !!!     Works great and so does FLDIGI once again.   I selected audio Rx1 as it is now present and the waterfall in FLDIGI tracks the radio and the frequency indicated in FLDIGI.  So the problem was corruption of DAX files and the solution was to load Ver 1.10.16 after carefully removing the old SW per Tim's procedure.
My heartfelt thanks to all who responded to my questions. What a great group and great factory support.      Best 73, Jim
