I confess that I'm a little bit surprised while looking at the waterfall
on these pictures. On the FT817 picture, I'm observing regularly spaced
signals over all the range. This is not usual. Perhaps an overdrive on
the audio channel ? On the FT920 picture, I can see a non flat channel
response on a frequency usually not used with FT8.

I suggest to verify that CAT is really well configured and operational
on both rigs.

Please note that switching the mode from DIG to USB can change also the
sockets on your XCVR on which ones the signals appear.
