I have the data cable plugged in and I've used data/pkt successfully before. This is why this is so frustrating... it used to work and now nothing works.
I'll have to see what I can rig up to run with the measure_deviate script and report back.

Do you have the cable from the DRAWS board plugged into the back of your
radio? ie. from the wsjtx doc
"Choose Data/Pkt if your radio offers such an option and uses it to
enable the rear-panel audio line input."
I think Data Mode: USB uses the microphone & speaker outputs so I
wouldn't use that.
Have you tried Data Mode: None
This prevents wsjtx from changing your radio mode setting.
Use the measure_deviate.sh script to verify you are able to send a tone
out your radio. ie. Use a second radio tuned to the transmit frequency
of the first radio. Get this working first as it is basic functionality
you can build on.
