I am trying to QSO on 17m, 20m, 40m, and 160m with an IC-756PRO.
I’m using WSJT-X in FT8 mode via a CI-V for CAT control and SignaLink for audio. System sound settings appear correct. Control tests of PTT and CAT succeed (in the Radio tab of WSJT-X).
My 40m and 160m antennas can receive pretty well (30-40db RX on average). I don’t have an external amp yet, although the 756PRO has 2 internal amp settings. RX and TX are turned up on SignaLink. I have been calling CQ and trying to answer other nearby radios’ calls for a week but it seems no one is receiving my TX.
SignaLink’s and the radio’s TX lights come on and I see the record of the TX in WSJT-X. However, in addition to the lack of response from all other radios, I also don’t show up on the Reverse Beacon Network or similar sites.
What should I do to troubleshoot the problem?
