New Digital Mode – FT8

Made my first contact Joe Taylor’s new digital mode, FT8. QSO with SM5EPO (Sweden) on 20M. Looks like this mode will be a hit. Much faster that either JT65 or JT9. Good amount of activity even with poor propagation.

I was using Joe’s newest software version; WSJT-X ver 1.8.0-rc1  Works well with my Flex 6500.
