WSPR 40 meter

First I was calling CQ with FT8 on 40 meters this morning. No one answered my CQ calls. Why not? I don't know. My 5 watt signal was heard into the USA this morning. I was heard all over Europe. But no FT8 answer. But I think I know. Most hams runs FT8 automatically and are calling only CQ. Or they search only for DX. That's why I begin to dislike the FT8 mode. I prefer WSPR because now I know the rig does work and antenna is doing well.
