    No, it just lists who has been heard. The data comes from several sources like PSK Reporter and JT Alert.

    Found it! Shift+left mouse click moves xmt frequency independently. Ctrl+left mouse moves both. Alt+mouse moves rcv only.

    ive been having a better experience with FT8 - I admit, i've been flipping the amp on occasionally to complete a contact. From what I'm seeing here and on the Facebook group, running higher power is the norm . . .

    Yes some days i seem to hear a lot of dx but can't seem to get them to answer. Either increase your power a bit or find a different band to work. Usually i will find a band that is good for me after having no luck on another.
    The propagation gods are fickle. Lol.

    FT8 decodes are not anywhere the sensitivity of JT65 or JT9. On JT65, I have a reasonable expectation that a station that I receive at a -20 or -21 will respond to my call with 40-50W. On FT8 thats more like -15 or 16 with 70-80W. Thats my experience so far, your mileage may vary.
