    I downloaded the driver for the IC7300 on my mac and loaded it. When I connect the radio I don't see anything. When I turn on WSJTX and set it for IC7300 It doesn't see the rig. Any suggestions. I WAS using Signalink before with an old 735. So the setting will change I'm sure.

    How do you know that the driver loaded? What Mac OS version?

    Yea, I don't that the driver loaded. Can't figure out how to see if it did. Also I am running High Sierra.

    Check out these instructions from W0MPM. Although written for connecting a 590, the driver installation steps are exactly the same for the Icom 7300 as they use the same chipset.

    K0PIR has instructions and videos here for connecting the Icom 7300 to the Mac and using WSJT-X.

    To check that the Silicon Labs driver is in fact installed, take a look in MacintoshHD / Library / Extensions for a file named SiLabsUSBDriver.kext.
