I'm just getting setup for FT-8 with my K3s.  The explanation W3FPR gives is really clear and understandable.

Thanks for the tip.

Yes but the information in the WSJT-X manual IS INCORRECT as applied to Elecraft radios. 

Go to: and scroll down the left side of the page to "Setup Elecraft radios for Data Modes".    This is absolutely correct and everything else you may read or hear is most assuredly....... wrong.
