About FT8

Just like a pileup on SSB, if other stations are stepping over a current QSO, I’m not going to suddenly drop a QSO in progress to work you just because you’re loud or rude.  Wait until I finish with the QSO in progress.  I can work more stations at a higher rate of speed, which makes everyone happy in the end.

  1. Far too many don’t understand how the JT/FT modes work and hammer calls right on top of an ongoing QSO. There is work going on to address this in the WSJT-X application but it is sad that that hams do not spend the time to get their head around the mechanics of the mode. Thank you for the QSO by the way. First 9X on digital.
