Hello, Having a problem with fldigi waterfall disappearing when I switch to the 20 and 15 meter bands. noticed when I change the 20/15 meter band that dax signal moves to slice #2, that changes the dax setting in the sound setup. so the water fall on fidigi disappears , until I change it on the sound setup When Its change I get the waterfall back. Also notice on all the other bands the signal stays on the first slice of the Dax control box.  Am I missing a setting somewhere? Running a flex 6500 and sdr newest version.

This probably isn't a Fldigi issue since it's configuration is static whereas the slice/DAX channel configuration is not.  I suspect it is a band persistence issue.  I assume you are using the band buttons to change frequencies.  To verify it is a band persistence issue, change bands to 20 or 15m by doing direct frequency entry into the slice frequency display that is working properly with Fldigi.  If this works, then the issue is that the slice/band combination for 20 and 15m has a different DAX channel associated with it.

Entered  a 20 frequency on a working slice, still the same problem. Kills the waterfall going from 40 meter to 20 meters....

What is the DAX channel assigned to the slice before (working) and once it changes frequency (not working)?

Hello Tim,

Kinda solved the problem. I opened all 4 slices on my SDR software each on a different band .Now the waterfall in fldigi is fb on all bands.(when changing bands ) Noticed on the Dax panal that when I change bands it stays on the first slice and doesn't change to the next slice.

Thanks
