Playing with Fldigi, signal link, MacPro with BootCamp, with my FT-891 has been interesting. I do not find the Digital HF is any more productive than good old fashion CW. When bands are dead they are dead. Propagation? Inactive hams? Whatever the blame the result is the same. My perusal of FT-8 operating procedure does not incite any interest in going there at the moment. Perhaps JS8Call but I have enough to play with at the moment.
