A bit of FT8 - first runs

Posted: 15 Jan 2019 09:12 AM PST

At my Island QTH I set up a Flex-6700 to run FT8 and ran about 30 QSOs. My
first FT8 QSO was W3BZT My first FT8 DX QSO was F1RUK Wasnt exactly wowed
by the experience. Software setup was fiddly. Like really fiddly. In many
ways the GUI was a 1980s dial-up modem connection sort []
