My concern with using VOX is that the radio has to receive audio before it goes into transmit.  Thus one can almost be assured some data will be lost.   Hence I find the better PTT choice is CAT with a 0.1 second TX delay before audio is sent to the radio from the software.  This is all available from the F2 Setup menu in WSJT-X.

You state, "if the VOX sensitivity is set correctly" which is an unknown at this point, so yes, it could be VOX.

Hardly.  There is no delay adjustment for VOX activation, just sensitivity.
if the VOX sensitivity is set correctly, activation is virtually
instantaneous.  It is the VOX release where the delay is adjustable.

Yes!  I never use VOX for that reason.

He's using VOX. Does that not introduce an additional delay over what
PTT would have?
