Welcome to Dr Sheldon Coopers Fun with FT8. So i fired up FT8 last night for some receiving fun to see whats doing and certainly heard a lot of places. It looks like FT8 is the new black with many people using it. 51 countries heard and many more stations especially out of Japan. All in all, it was a bit of fun to see what I can here on my dipole. Flicked over to 15m now to see if there is anyone about.
