Subject: FT8 and DXCC

Message: Yes FT8 and FT4 count towards ARRL DXCC as digital contacts.FT8/FT4 are digital protocols that will require software, a computer and a soundcard device like Signalink or Rigblaster. And of course a radio. Some of the newer high end radios don't require an external soundcard interface. Think of it like operating RTTY,PSK31 etc. No internet unless you are operating a remote station or satellite unless you are attempting a digipeater contact through 1. FT8 on HF or VHF above has the ability to pull out signals below the noise floor while using low power and poor antennas too. 73 Mark KM6HB
