On June 6th 2020, WSJT-X 2.2.0 General Release became available. Since the Beta version stops working on June 10th 2020, I decided to go ahead and install the new version. Many times when updating or installing new software, the command line interface is used. A lot of people are not comfortable using the command line and prefer using the GUI (Graphical User Interface). For this post, we will install WSJT-X using the GUI.
Download the new version of WSJT-X from the WSJT-X website.
Navigate to the directory where the file is located.
Right click the file and select “Package Install”.
Raspian will ask if you want to install the file. Click Install.
Raspian will ask for a password to continue. Enter your password and click OK.
After installation, reboot the Raspberry Pi. All settings were retained during the upgrade and WSJT-X is ready for testing.
I have been Testing WSJT-X 2.2.0 all week and have not run into any issues. There have been some nice band openings and several good contacts made.
