Subject: New FT8 mode - great for county hunting!


I've made over 300 FT8 QSOs so far, many of them new digital and/or band counties, especially on 30m and 17m. There's tons of activity on all bands. I've worked VK5 on 30m hours after sunrise and long-path in the evening. I have all but 5 states and a couple dozen DXCC entities, using only 100W and a multi-band vertical from Colorado. Most of the folks upload their FT8 QSOs to ARRL Logbook of the World.

If you have operated other digital modes, this one should be a snap. If not, get a computer with a sound card and an interface for your radio. The software can be found here:
