    A follow-up thought...I don't know the IC7100 but maybe it should be in the USB mode as opposed to DATA. Ill let someone else address that.
    With FT8 you want a full 2.7 or 3 khz window whereas with some of the older rigs the DATA setting only gives 500 khz which would look like yours.
    You should be able to easily see individual signals instead of a blob once everything is set properly.

    turning off the usb-d to just usb i get a much better waterfall. but for some reason, i can not keep the usb-d off to just usb with this program as soon as i transmit it puts it back to usb-d.

    i have tried fldigi just to check and it keeps its usb only and not pushing it to usb-d on tx

    so looking at this program i can not see why it's doing that

    its a cuppa tea time and have a think. thanks for all the help ofc KR andy

    hello all

    I have some great news, I have found out what the problem was within the setting on the program as I did copy the setting from someone on youtube that had the same radio. I had to change a few so they must have had the same problem that I had,
    I move the dot from data/pkt to usb this has stoped my radio from going from usb to usb-d on transmit .

    i have made a few qso now in a short space of time,so it seems to be doing what its meant too, the blob has gone on the screen that was down to running it on usb-d

    all i need to do now is stop the red upper half box thing from moving and sitting on my green one at the top of my waterfall.
    so the guy said on his video

    KR all andy

    The Data Mode is preferred for running digi modes on the radio because it bypasses all audio EQ and pre-emphasis. Especially important if you use the full 3KHZ audio bandwidth for the waterfall. To keep the red transmit bar from moving, check the box for Hold Transmit Frequency and it will stay put. You would benefit greatly from reading the users guide that can be downloaded with the software. NOTE: Even using Data mode on the radio, you can still select which modulation source you want to use; Microphone, USB, or ACCY Jack. Set you receive filter bandwith for 3KHz for whichever mode you use to get the full waterfall and set the Software to the same bandwidth.
