先にFT8Callの周波数は7078, 14078でやっていた。そこえWSJT-X 2.0rc1 FT8 77bitてテストQSOは078, 14078とアナウンス。。。
そうですFT8CallはWSJT-X 2.0ではデコードできません CRCが異なります。。
多分 HFでのFT8/JT65/JT9ユーザーとFT8Callユーザー QSOのイメージが違うのかもしれません。
X070の周波数でPSK31, PSK63, PSK125, MFSK16, Olivia,,,etcが混在している時があります。それを見れば別に078に異なるモードでても気にする必要はないです。
To make FT8 QSOs with stations using version 1.x software:
- Operate in the standard FT8 sub-bands
- Be sure to uncheck Always generate 77-bit messages and Decode only 77-bit
- Do not invoke any of the special contest-like operating activities
- Do not operate with a compound or nonstandard callsign, or try to work a station
using such a callsign
To test and use the new WSJT-X 2.0 message types for FT8:
- Operate at dial frequencies 7.078 or 14.078, or elsewhere by special
- Check the boxes Always generate 77-bit messages and Decode only 77-bit
- Optionally, you may test any of the special contest-like operating activities. You may find it most convenient to do this by special arrangement with another station.
Howdy folks! We've just surpassed 5000 testers of FT8Call! I've heard of some really great QSOs happening and hope there are many more in y'all's future. I also keep getting loads of emails about a couple recent happenings...so I wanted to make an announcement to help communicate with y'all.
The WSJT-X group has started testing their new release (2.0 RC1) of WSJT-X and have chosen 7.078 and 14.078 MHz to trial the new FT8 features. These are two frequencies where you'll find FT8Call operators. What this means is that if you're operating FT8Call, you might see some signals transmitting every other interval in the waterfall and those signals will not decode. Those signals are likely the WSJT-X 2.0 FT8 signals. It should be nothing to worry about, as there is plenty of room for all of us on the band. But, if you run into problems, please let me know.
Next up, FT8Call is Free Software. It is and will always be free. Free as in beer and free as in speech. Meaning, you will never have to pay for it, and, you can do with it what you want. It is a derivative of WSJT-X, is open source, and licensed under the GPLv3.
The last question I am getting is about the name "FT8Call" which was likely prompted by a particular statement made by K1JT today. I want to point you to the history section of the documentation where I've explained the timeline of the experiment and further why FT8Call is named the way it is:
Also, stay tuned for more info on FT8Call 0.7...lots of exciting stuff coming down the pipe!
