    I hope this is the right place to ask this....My rig is an IC-718 and a Signalink, it is working fine in FT8 on WSJT-x but when I try to run WSPR it doesn't seem to be doing anything. My settings for the rig are identical as when I run FT8 but the "HZ box" is red and I can't figure out how to adjust that. If I click on "TUNE" my PTT light activates. I am not getting a waterfall display.

    Any suggestions will be appreciated,

    Thanks, Bob

    I don't think the separate WSPR program has been actively maintained since 2009. From the WSPR software download page: "Most operators will be best served by using WSJT-X for WSPR as well as for any of the two-way communication modes."

    In WSJT-X, just select WSPR from the Mode menu and you'll be all set.

    (If I'm misunderstanding, and you're not using the standalone WSPR program, let me know.)

    Haha! No worries. I did the same thing at first, and I'm sure we're not the only ones. Have fun! -Blake
