Using WSJT-X with Commander and a Flex-6000 Series Transceiver
de Jim NM1W
WSJT-X is an application that implements JT9, a new mode designed especially for the LF, MF, and HF bands, as well as the popular JT65 mode. Both modes were designed for making reliable, confirmed QSOs under extreme weak-signal conditions. WSJT-X operation uses only one VFO whose frequency is shifted as required during transmission and reception.
open the WSJT-X File menu, and select Settings
On the General tab, fill in your call and grid square
On the Radio tab,
select Rig: DX Lab Suite Commander
poll interval: 1s
If you have a separate COM port connected to a device with PTT capability (e.g. a Winkeyer) you can optionally configure WSJT-X to use it, as doing so will provide more accurate PTT timing. If you choose this approach, however, don't configure Commander to use the same COM port for PTT, as WSJT-X would then be denied access to the COM port.
If Commander cannot switch your radio between reception and transmission, then consider an alternate selection for PTT method, e.g. VOX.
Split Operation: Fake it
On the Audio tab,
Input: Dax Audio RX 1 (DAX RX Audio) Mono
Output: DAX Audio TX 1 (DAX TX Audio) Both
in the transmit panel, enable DAX (its just below the +ACC button)
set the mode to DIGU
set the filter width to 5K
On the DAX Control Panel, enable audio stream 1, and enable TX for audio stream 1
