    I think I remember back when PSK31 was the "disruptive technology" that everyone was going ga-ga over, about 20 years ago, there was something called the PSK Warbler, that was just a bare-bones QRP SSB rig designed solely for running PSK. I think it was a kit from the New Jersey QRP Group.

    Since the radio hardware technology for FT8 and JS8 is still the same 20 year old audio over SSB that PSK used (granted the software is a lot more advanced ) seems like someone could ressurrect the "Warbler" kit and update it.

    Then not only don't hams need propagation or good antennas to "work the world" (-24 dB !!!!!!!!!!!!) you won't even need an expensive transceiver.

    Yaesu, Icom and Kenwood would go out of business from lack of sales.
    So would Elecraft and that Flex stuff.

    No fancy rigs needed = no advertising. ARRL would go bankrupt. Wouldn't have ARRL to kick around any more.

    No need for real antennas. Toss a 10 foot length of lamp cord on your basement floor and Work The World at -26 dB ! !!!!!!!! Won't have to worry about HOA antenna restrictions either since there's no need for outdoor antennas, "effective" or otherwise.

    Propagation? Heck, Maunder Minimum, BRING IT! (!!!!!!)

    -24 dB ! (!). Heck the next version might be even more sensitive, so sensitive that it can detect signals that are not even there !

    Yep... "innovative" maybe...or perhaps just "new." But "disruptive"?

    I enjoy trying many different modes and one of these days I will figure out the DMR thing. Saw a post for new one, Peanuts need to see what that is all about. One thing you can count on with something new, it won't be new for long. Have fun.

    To read what some are saying, that's about all there is left. 1 million FT8 "QSOs" versus a few thousands of all other digital modes combined?

    If it gets any more "popular" that may be all that there is left to do.

    And that would be a real shame. The whole next generation of hams will only know Click Click Click Click Click.

    So in other words, we would have truly gone "full circle" :)

    I think you missed the point of JS8...It is not point and click, it is a QSO, with FT8 specification. FT8 is more of a point and click you are right, but not JS8

    Please note, it JS8 supports 13wpm to 20wpm, so can be slow (Like Passing the General License years ago (13WPM).

    But nope, not a point and click digital mode ) / JS8

    C U on the bands, NN2X
