How to work FT8 DXpedition mode
I will try for FT8 DXpedition mode in next DXpedition.
Following is graph scope of WSJT-X.
When I start CQ on DF=950KHz, a couple of callers will call on freq and
I will answer one.
After 2nd QSO or so, the pile-up starts and I will change the freq by choosing
less calling freq.
I will use freq fix mode(TX=RX) with auto sequence. So my TX freq will
change from QSO to QSO.
This may be not standard split operation practice but fully utilize WSJT-X's excellent function
such as multi-decoding and auto sequence.
I ask all of you to call 50KHz stepwise such as DF=400, 450, 500 so on
for better decoding.
I wish this will be standard operation procedure for FT8 DXpedition mode.
If this will go smoothly, RTTY power game like a hell will be no more required for digital mode DXing!
I will try for the best to prove the feasibility of this FT8 DXpedition
mode in the next DXpedition.
So please have your fingers crossed!
