Exactly what I thought. Been doing a lot of testing and found below 130 watts or so the problem goes away. Will order some clamp on ferrites and keep the power down.

I would suspect RFI on the audio cables to/from the soundcard and possibly on the CAT cable.

It doesn't happen below about 1500 or so on the WSJT-X waterfall.

in what way does it get worse at higher frequencies?

As I go up in frequency the problem gets worse.

Reducing power does eliminate the problem. Also just noticed the mode switches between USB, where I set it, to LSB and then back again. This is where the VFO display is. Weird.

OK. So if you reduce power to minimum, or use a dummy load, does the issue go away?

In WSJT-X I selected DX LAB SUITE Commander as the radio.

can you explain how you have arranged for Commander to have CAT control of your rig while WSJT-X is also using the CAT interface?

Can you explain exactly what you see in Commander when the above happens
please? What rig do you have and what options have you selected for
WSJT-X "Settings->Radio->RIg", "Settings->Radio->PTT Method",
"Settings->Radio->Mode", and "Settings->Radio->Split Operating"?
What I see is the VFO A frequency in Commander goes to 00 during transmit then back to my selected frequency when the rig is toggled to receive.

Do you RIT (clarifier in Yaesu...) enabled and tuned on the rig?
If so, the tx freq will change as RIT gets removed for TX....
Looks like I am getting RF via the CAT cable into DxCommander. When transmitting the VFO frequency will drop to 00 then go back to the selected frequency when in receive. WSJT-X and the rig's frequency does not change.
What mix clamp on ferrites should I use on the cable?
