WSJT-X: It works, it works (or Julian is a genius)
It’s always good to hear from Julian, G4ILO. However, an email received today was of immediate interest. I’d posted a couple of weeks ago that I was having problems getting WSJT-X to work, on account of the stuttering audio.
Julian kindly emailled this morning to ask whether I’d got it going yet, because he’d heard of someone else having the same problem. And better still, he related how the person had fixed the problem, changing the output audio device to Direct-X.
I received the email at work today and frankly was tempted to remote control to my PC at home and have a play, but alas it was a busy day. However, this evening, I popped up to the shack after supper and had a look.
Sure enough, I had a ‘Direct X’ output available for my audio, so I mapped WSJT-X’s output to that and wondered. And hoped.
I called HA3LI who was calling CQ with a huge signal on 14MHz JT9-1. It sounded good on my monitor receiver. No stuttering…. And then, magic of magic,HA3LI came back and we completed an easy QSO.
Just as good, looking at the HAMSPOTS site, my signal was also copied by VK3AMA and KE5SSH.
It looks like I am in business. I am so pleased! Thank you Julian!
