Subject: Some thoughts... (more)

Message: I started considering FT8 mobile... with theses thoughts and findings

First: Make sure the laptop you use has the CPU horsepower to decode quickly!!! I used the Lenovo I use for FLDigi. I was still TRANSMITTING the next cycle while the previous cycle had NOT finished decoding. (CPU TOO SLOW).

Second: Due to the CPU spee (lack thereof)... I really did not get the opportunity to evaluate using the 6 character abbreviation we use for the MARAC CW contest. Their use will fit the 13 character format... and by their use should indicate mobile vs fixed operation.
