    With the exception of the MSK144 mode, WSJT-x 2.1.0 works fine on my iMac. All of the other modes work ok. When I select MSK144 as my mode, WSJT-x will crash and close when the first key or mouse button is pressed.
    Has anyone had a similar problem or know of a solution?

    A month ago, pre-Perseids, I mentioned having this same problem on the Yahoo group. Bill G4WJS replied "there is a known defect in fast modes like MSK144 on macOS with WSJT-X v2.1.0. We are working on a fix but you should be able to use v2.0.1 in the meantime."
    I have both installed, in different directories, and 2.0.1 is indeed ok with MSK144. You should be able to get 2.0.1 at

    Does anyone know of another app that supports MSK144 on the Mac?

    Thanks in advance,

    To the best of my knowledge, MSK144 is exclusive to WSJT-X (and forks), and I don't believe that any of the forks support macOS.

    Thanks, that's consistent with what I feared. I sure wish JTDX did MSK144!
