Hi All,

Please allow me to ask about the following situation, while in MSK144 mode-

The frequency is set to 50.280, the split mode is enabled, message TX5 is "CQ 285 DJ0OT" and it's set as "next msg". Now I enable "Enable TX".

The transmission is at 50.280 but the receiving frequency too. How can I listen to a possible answer at 50.285 ?

Best wishes,
Claude (DJ0OT)

Hi Claude,

in order to enable automatic QSY to a working frequency in MSK144 mode you must check "Settings->General->Enable VHF/UHF/Microwave features". Once you have done that you should see the following pair of controls on the WSJT-X main window:

If you check that option you can then use the spin box to the left to set your frequency for calling CQ. The frequency you select in the main frequency window or on your rig directly will become your desired QSO working frequency. The frequency to Tx your CQ call on is specified as the kHz offset in the current MHz set on your rig, choose a recognized MS calling frequency.

For example to call CQ on 144.380 MHz and expect a QSO on 144.385 MHz, set the "Tx CQ" frequency to 380 and tune your rig to 144.385 MHz. The Tx6 message will be automatically set to "CQ 385 DJ0OT JN58" and sent on 144.380 MHz if you enable Tx, and when you get a reply your QSO will proceed on 144.385 MHz.

All the above is predicated on your having working CAT control and "Settings->Radio->Split Operating" "Rig" or "Fake It" checked, whichever works best for you rig. Note that if your QSO partners also have working CAT control then they will automatically QSY to your selected QSO working frequency when they reply to your CQ call.

You can of course do all of this by editing the Tx6 message appropriately and either manually QSYing your rig appropriately or manually setting up SPLIT mode on your rig, These are your only options if you do not have functioning CAT control.
