    Ignore the noise -- as in the noise in this forum. It's interesting to note how those who pontificate about FT8/JS8 in these discussions (and eHam) are seemingly perturbed by your so-called "cheerleading." Where's the harm in posting your updates and voicing your opinion? From what I see, these same folks have contributed nothing to the hobby except to take, opine, and complain at every opportunity.

    Cheer away.

    Now what would be groundbreaking, would be to type your message in your own language, and have it translated to the language of the DX entity you are sending to.
    Wouldn't have thought it will take some genius too long

    Along the lines of " If you need to tell folks how great you are you're probably not that great". People can figure it out they don't need to be constantly told.

    Thanks for the support! There nearly 9,000 Ham down loaded this program (JS8), and I would like to have other enjoy the mode (JS8) as well

    Thanks again!

    Even the "good movies" had press, otherwise, how do ppl find out? Look at all the 'advance press' radios get, here we have public notice of the 'advancement' taking place, not just 'advance press'!

    Talk about DISRUPTIVE, during a contest FT8 infests almost all of the digital and cw band segments with HIGH power(much higher than needed) stations clawing over each other(unnecessarily in my opinion). That said, I like and use FT8, a true marvel of software engineering but like JS8 as well...even better for most situations(yes, yes, DXpeditions can run many more contacts per hour that way) where it alone has the extreme weak signal free text keyboard to keyboard AND a marvelous set of Directed Messaging options. I admit I am quite fond of FSQ mode but Jason picked this up and put it on steroids for JS8, the best thing I like about this mode. You can query another station for a S/N report without the operator's intervention and even send a message with automatic acknowledgement. Try it, you'll like it, as long as you can tolerate the relatively low data rate. If you can't, you can always go back to 75 meter SSB with your 3KW Loudenboomer Amp to wait out the next 5-6 years of Solar Minimum. As always, YMMV

    How do I find out more info on this ? Can I use a QRP CW rig ? How is the computer hook up to the radio ? Is the messages sent in normal conversation language. This sounds like the future of amateur radio.

    It's just a USB "digital over audio" mode like JT65, JT9, PSK, AFSK, FT8, etc. etc. etc.

    So you need a radio capable of doing USB, you need a sound card interface, and a computer with a very precisely coordinated clock (usually running an app like Dimension4 etc. to keep the clock uber-accurate). You can't use any of these modes with a CW-only rig, and the computer is not optional.

    Just Google "JS8Call" or start with the precurser, "FT8" and start reading
