Impact: minor (?) Obversations: When selecting frequency up / down 'a slot', it does not change slot per se, it only add or subtract 750 Hz - if the rigs tuning knob is bumped or adjusted - frequency up / down no longer lines up with predefined "slots" (defined for this protocol) it just simply adds or subtracts 750 Hertz. This may accidentally no longer line up with any predefined "slots") Work around = Select Band drop down or manualy (re)tune rig. (Ex Intel s/w tester ) 73, Tim KD6HOF

I'm an old hat at FT8. Using this new software has exciting potential and i look forward to using it more. My current setup (below) is straightforward and has always worked well with digital in the past: VarAC 6.2.4 VARA HF 4.6.7 IC-7300 EFHW / 20W Win 11 / LG-Gram My new first try on air with this - successfully sent message to another station and also received unsolicited message back from a second station... So, all seems well, so far. Before calling it a success and shutting it down, I decided to do a broadcast which 'started'... but abruptly failed/paused. Did it transmit entire message (?) - i'm not sure. The transmitter keyed and started a TX, but audio stopped after couple seconds. Rig stayed keyed for ~20 seconds with no further audio transmition, then (built-in watchdog timer) shut it down, for safety reasons. VaAC was 'stuck' with displaying busy (frequency was clear) and unusable, until shut down and restarted... Ideas?
VarAC freezes trying Broadcast content media
