That really has nothing to with this email list.

Your problem is probably RF in the shack.

You'll probably find a certain power level on certain bands will interrupt the USB devices.

All sorts of solutions to be had -- USB cable with torroid (built-in or do-it-yourself), grounding things correctly, antenna loops to prevent RF on the shield.

Unfortunately, the CAT Control with WSJT-X for the FT-1000D seems to be intermittent.  It
will just drop out and another dialog comes up that indicates that communication has failed
and to check SETTINGS.  Here are the setting for the FT-1000D in use:

CAT Contro
    Serial Port COM4
    Baud Rate: 4800
    Data Bits: 8
    Stop Bits: 2
    Handshake: None
    Force Control Lines:
    DTR:  No selection
    RTS:  RTS High
    PTT Method: VOX
    Transmit Audio Source:  Front/Mic
    Mode:  USB

This setup seems to work with Logger 32, Writelog but is intermittent with WSJT-X.

Anyone using a FT-1000D have a solution to this intermittent CAT Control problem with
