More about FT8

I liked the Tweets and blog of Jeff Davis KE9V. He likes FT8 too but he's a CW man also. He made some statements about FT8. Number 3 and 4 are from Jeff. I couldn’t find number 1 and 2. So I added 1 and 2 to this list.

Best Reason Number 1 to embrace FT8: No jibber-jabber any longer. No Chit Chat monologues. We do not waste precious bandwidth anymore. We are freed from the many types of digital modes.

Best Reason Number 2 to embrace FT8: we often complained about a lack of activity. But now 85 % of all radio operators are active within 2 KHz of each band, isn’t that wonderful?

Best Reason Number 3 to embrace FT8: never having to listen to political opinions on the air. FT8 transports users from the tall weeds of bullshit conversation to a land of purely radiated signals.

Best Reason Number 4 to embrace FT8: you’ve complained about phony baloney signal reports since Moses was in the bulrushes. FT8 generates true signal reports. Scientific. No fibbing, no cookie cutter. Can I get an amen?


  1. Amen! FT8 is the best ;-) ;-) 73, Bas

    1. Best Reason Number 5: It's a easy mode to use with remote. Plug in your radio, plug in your computer. Don't bother other people and DX from everywere.

    2. Hallo Bas, en zo is het ;-) 73 Paul
