Recently FLDIGI + Signal Link provide a dark waterfall, or an anemic waterfall color intensity (extreme settings are needed to see any "blue and yellow" on the waterfall. I've spent hours reviewing my settings within Window10 , FLDIGI, and the Signal Link instructions perhaps a dozen times. I'm stuck! How to return the FLDIGI waterfall display to it's normal intensity and signals display?
Note: In contrast, WSJT-x performs well without any problems: However, FLDIGI: has trouble seeing sufficient audio to illuminate the waterfall unless I use extreme audio knob setting on the radio AND the Signal Link "RX" control does not affect the waterfall display signal intensity with the settings as below.
Current FLDIGI settings:
Squelch OFF, slider set to minimum
Upper signal level: -40
Signal range: 90
Note: these are the settings to allow me to at lease see something on the waterfall.
Port audio: checked
Capture: LINE(2-USB Audio Codek)
Playback: SPEAKERS( (2-USB Audio Codek)
Sound Control Panel>Playback>SPEAKERS/HEADPHONE (Realtek audio)>OK
Sound Control Panel>Recording>MICROPHONE(default)>OK
Sound Control Panel>Recording>LINE-USB CODEC>Properties>Levels> "0.0 dB">OK
With the above settings, I get blue waterall with lots of yellow noise that renders the waterall useless. I can only overdrive the waterfall into "orange" with the rig volume set very high to uncomfortable listening levels.
I've used FLDIGI for perhaps 6 or more years with an old RigBlaster (which was a hassle), and I got good results with this Signal Link shortly after I bought it, but now, I'm unsure how to proceed.
