Re: K3S WSJT and FT8

Olof,

Are you connected to the K3S using the USB cable?
If so, check the soundcard that WSJT-X is trying to use for audio output
- it should be USB AUDIO CODEC.
You must NOT have anything plugged into the K3S LINE IN jack unless you
are using a different soundcard than the internal one.

If the soundcard is correct, and you are using DATA A mode, set the
input to LINE in the menu.

You will have to set the audio levels (there are multiple controls -
some in your computer software and the LINE level (mic knob) of the K3S.
  You must end up with 4 bars solid on the ALC meter with the 5th bar
flashing.
See the article on my website www.w3fpr.com

Don,
     You are correct it works fine this way. I do it that way. Only one
suggestion, use VOX. once tone is on the radio goes into transmit rather
nicely. I do this for all the digital modes and have run into no
problems. Once Elecraft added the internal sound card it really made
operating easier.

73,
Barry

That would be wonderful, Olof!  Also 80M. And thanks for the 40M Q last
weekend.

Thank you all. I thought I had all this done but the obfuscated Windows 10 audio settings caught me out probably. It turned out that it was the transmit chain of audio level settings wsjt pwr - windows spkr audio - K3 mic/line level that had to be ’tuned’. So next step will be to read up on how you do the qsos. 3B8M might do a test run on 17m later today and I will try to do 160 and perhaps 80 around sunset/sunrise night between Wed and Thu my time. That would be 1830 and 0120 UTC respectively.

73 and, again, many thanks for the quick help

Re: K3S WSJT and FT8

Wes Stewart-2
Nothing to do with your problem but I had to say that I copied, and called
unsuccessfully, 3B8M on 40-meter CW on 11-24-19 @ 1651Z, which is 0951 AM local
time here in Arizona.  This is 3 hours past my SR on a >11,000 mile path.  Who
needs FT8?

I'll look for you on 80 and 160.

Hi Wes,
I worked 3B8M on 11-24-19 at 1721 on 14.096 MHz using my K2/10 running 5 Watts.
From my QTH here near Indianapolis that is a 9,900+ mile path.

Mark, WB9CIF

In my reply to Wes' post about hearing 3B8M on 40 meter CW and I posted I worked them with my K2/10 at 5 Watts on 20 meters, some apparently thought I used FT8 to make the contact. That is not the case. I was using CW as I was a QRP entry in the CQWW CW contest.
