FT8 a New Mode!

posted Jul 26, 2017, 9:18 AM by Anthony Luscre   [ updated Jul 26, 2017, 9:21 AM ]

Here is a chance to get in on the ground floor as a new mode rapidly gains popularity.
FT8, the newest digital mode from Noble Laurite K1JT, Joe Taylor. FT8 has been added to free WSJT-X suite that already includes JT65, JT9, MSK144 and more. For those familiar with very sensitive, but very slow contacts FT8 will seem very fast! FT8 involves a 15-second transmission versus JT65's one-minute transmissions. So contacts are 4 times faster but you do give up a few dB of sensitivity. For more details visit WSJT-X for Dummies & Experts
