Check out this thread https://community.flexradio.com/flexr...

While it is for an older version WSJT-X, the setup is the same.

Use TCP instead of serial.

Also use WSJT-X 1.9.1 until 2.0 is released.

Hi,

Here is my setup for WSJT. My TX button in DAX does not
turn blue when I transmit. All that shows is it is
streaming the audio. Call CQ. Try to transmit and if you
see the red line showing output level in the DAX TX. Go
into transmit by hitting the MOX button on the radio or
in the SmartSDR panel. If you then are putting out RF,
it means only the program is not keying the radio.

Below are my screens, your port numbers might be different,
but one should be your PTT port. You would find the port
numbers in your control panel.

My ports are COM 4 and COM 5. Com 5 in cat panel is set up
as the PTT port. Again your port numbers could be different.

Make sure your PC time is accurate. There are a few free programs that can keep the PC time accurate. I use a commercial package called Present Tense.
