    Try this. Go to the WSJT-X frequency tab in settings, right click inside the frequency table, reset will be an option, click on that.

    You noticed the RED and Yellow frequency display and no "band indication" to the left of it too.

    There is a green circle with an “S” between the band and frequency display, does that mean I’m in split mode?

    Many thanks to James Baxter K0UA who spent a lot of time on the phone and Teamviewer with me to get my WSJT-X software for FT8 to work again. It seems a critical file had gone missing that was not part of the new version download, and a couple of other issues!!! Thanks so much James!

    I a few months ago I had been using FT8 with my IC-7300 with out any problems. Had the instruction written down so that when I used it the settings were correct.
    I got away from it for awhile and didn't get on the air in FT8 mode.
    So here I am today trying work with it. The problem I am having is I don't get any messages in the Band Activity window from stations transmitting. The waterfall is relatively filed with signals though. I have gone through checking setting in the program as well as the IC-7300, but something just isn't right. It's beyond me at this point.

    I probably should have made a new thread.

    Is your PC clock correct?

    Are you using WSJT-X 2.0? The new version is not compatible with 1.9 and older; everybody is on it now
