Last night I’ve finally found the time to start experimenting the new FT8 digital mode, directy from my iMac.
It’s still too early to give a feedback, but I’ve been really impressed by the automatic (auto sequence) mode, that allows automatic QSOs starting from the Calling CQ till the final 73!.
Well, honestly I’ve found it very easy to setup, but also too much automatic, allowing my iMac to conduct several QSOs in behalf of me without requiring my interaction. Absolutely inpersonal and totally asectic.
At the very first, I’ve downloaded the current stable WSJT-X version 1.7, but I’ve suddenly realized that FT8 was not implemented in that version, and therefore I’ve decided to download the 1.8 rc2.
Configuration, required some changes on OSX settings, and a reboot, while the connection to my TS-590S required some tricks. I copied the settings from the RUMlog configuration, and it worked immediately.
I am a brand new Ham
Do you know the settings for FT8 using the WSJT-X Wide Graph (waterfall)
What should I set for:
Bins/Pixel Start HZ Palete Flatten Ref Spec
N Avg Default Cumulative
Google Images for “Bins/Pixel Start HZ” it will return some interesting pictures…
