Will this run under Xp? It's what I've got at the moment ...
Sorry. Likely not. Many ops are running it on Windows 7 successfully, but that's about it.
Where is the executable "code" anyway? I'm not finding anything that remotely resembles an .exe file ...
What compile-time switches would I have to change to get it to run under Xp?
Please see my message following the incorrect link where I posted the correct location.
A NEW FT8 with QSO and Rag Chew capabilities called FT8CALL
I don't know, my friend.
I can personally support Windows 10. Any other versions, you're on your own.

No help. Clicking the link above brings me back to: https://groups.io/g/ft8call
I also have this message up near the top in red: "You are not subscribed to this group with this email address."
Okay - I applied for membership - now it shows awaiting approval per below:
"Your subscription has not yet been approved."
What tool chain did you use to compile for Win 10? I'll see if I can get this thing working under Xp maybe ...
Me either. I'll wait for a proper web site to get it and try it out. Too many "Groups" and hoops to jump through.
You should be all set my friends.
Please keep in mind...this app is still in development. This isn't a general release. If you're uncomfortable with pre-release software, please wait for the future general release.
Toolchain is based on CMake. JTSDK would likely get you started.
FT8CALL is now 2nd most active on the Ham bands! Amazing (Right behind FT8!)
And this hs not yet been fully commissioned
Take a look!
Depends on the time of day, but FT8CALL has been hovering there for a while
Obviously...nowhere near comparable to the behemoth that is FT8
I'll take 0.3% though.
re: " If you're uncomfortable with pre-release software, please wait for the future general release."
My whole life has been "pre-release" (the road less traveled.) This is not an issue ... and now that I have my sight back, I shall continue (sidelined for the last couple years). Speaking of pre-release, have you worked 630m yet? I have, from a 30x60 ft residential backyard, reference my QRZ page for a WSPR map showing the results.
