    This is one for the Linux gurus.

    I have a Yaesu FTDX-1200, Signalink and RasberryPI 4 with the appropriate digital mode software loaded.
    1. I have a DB-9 to USB cable running between the 1200 and a USB port on the RPI.
    2. I have the Signalink cabled to the RTTY/DATA port on the 12oo to the Radio port on the Signalink.
    3. USB cable from Signalink connects to USB port on the RPI.

    With this set up CAT control works wonderfully with FLRIG and WSJT-X. I can receive digital traffic fine on 6m FT8 all day long. When I try to transmit a message the 1200 keys but nothing is being sent from the PI through the Signalink.

    I have the RPI audio on WSJT-X set to run though the ALSA software through the proper USB connection.
    I can receive with that config fine based upon the decoded messages I'm receiving in WSJT-X.

    Any idea on what I'm missing to get the signal to route back through the signalink?

    The issue must have been PEBKAC (Problem Exists Between Keyboard and Chair) since its working now. I believe I had the power volume in WSJT-X set wrong.
