Finally set up my Flex 6300 last weekend after it sat in the box for months. What an amazing radio!
I'm getting it dialed in for digital modes. Set up DM-780 yesterday and it works flawlessly on RTTY, BPSK, etc. Todays project (which I thought would be straightforward) is to bring up WSJT-X. Receive side works perfectly, but can't get any power out on transmit. CAT and PTT functions work fine. When I key up, I see a solid signal on the DAX control panel TX1 meter, radio keys, red light on the radio front panel illuminates, TX Ready changes to RED on the main display, but no deflection at all on the level or RF power meters. No deflection on the external wattmeter.
I have read a bunch of posts and don't see where I am dropping the ball. Could be a problem with WSJT-X, but if that were the case I wouldn't expect to see the DAX control panel TX meter deflect (which I do) when I put WSJT-X in "tune" mode.
I'm running SmartSDR v18.104.22.168 and the Kenwood TS-2000 rig configuration in WSJT-X.
Any suggestions appreciated!
Tnx & 73,
This is my first post, so you are my first replier. Thanks!
Yes, the P/CW DAX button is blue. Everything is configured pretty much the same as my DM-780 setup, which works fine. I'm using slice 1 with TX enabled and DAX channel 1 selected. DAX channel 1 is selected for TX in the DAX control panel. WSJT-X output points to DAX Audio TX1 and I see it on the DAX control panel, but no smoke from the tailpipe.
I love the digital audio exchange concept, but it makes it hard to put a scope probe somewhere for troubleshooting :-)
Someone else will likely beat me to the answer. You might try upgrading to v1.4.16 if nobody else spots the problem. I doubt that's the problem though. Rebooting or power cycling everything sometimes works when nothing else, will fix things.there is a transmit inhibit control on the setup form that I never mess with, check for that too. It's likely just something we've now both overlooked.

video on youtube at the same time. I usually solve that by closing down WSJT-X, CAT and DAX and restarting them. If I am very fast, I can even rescue that QSO!
My configuration is: SSDR-MiniDeluxe-WSJT-X (in HRD mode)-JTAlertX

1) Restarted SmartSDR/Cat/Dax multiple times
2) Tried different slices/com ports on different bands
3) Tried a standalone Transmit com port
4) Set the Transmit filter to low of 0 and high of 6000
2) Rebooted the computer (after each software reload... see below)
3) Rebooted the radio (multiple times)
4) Completely deleted and reloaded the WIn10 64bit version of WSJT-X v2.1.0 (computer reboot after reload)
5) Completely deleted the 64 bit version and loaded the 32 bit version (computer reboot after reload)
I'm hoping that someone can suggest a diagnostic and/or monitoring window where the process flow can be monitored for some error status.
It then provided a list of audio devices to check (Figure 2).
I picked the DAX Audio TX channel and the software determined that it was not the primary output device. It made the change automatically and, voila, Bob's your uncle!... WSJT-X is now transmitting correctly.
Thanks for the suggestion.
