    Good report (I muted the sound and read English subtitles).
    By the way, it appears FT8 will not be allowed in Winter Field Day according to the revised rules:

    I like how it also says in the rules:
    "Modes: Any mode… CW, SSB, AM, FM, DStar, C4FM, DMR, Packet, PSK, SSTV, RTTY, Olivia, Satellite, etc…"

    I has been my very first contest and I am proud of the 260 contacts I managed to make :) Good fun, hard work and an excercise.

    "FT8 is not an acceptable mode"
    What douchebagggery. Really.

    How come they are okay with internet (DStar) connections and all the other macro modes but call the most used and popular (at the moment) FT8 mode "not an acceptable mode"?

    Since ARRL has noted that FT8 meets the requirements for a HF contact who made FT8 "Not Acceptable?"

    Is that simply not updated from last year? Or are they trying to discourage fully automated contacts?
