    I was looking on hamspots and it showed ft8 activity at 14.130 . tuned to it and it sounded like and displayed like ft8 on the wsjt-x waterfall. does not decode. I'm not the brightest light bulb but I am very curious11

    It's a trial run of the new WSJT 2.0 - 77 bit vs 74 bit (I think that's right) that's why you didn't decode. Freq is temporary.
    The new vs. will be available in a week or so. In time for Jan 19 contests.
    Others may want to add some detail.

    It was the FT8 Round Up contest - 14.130 was the watering hole for 20 meters. The contest required WSJT-X version 2.0.0 rc5 to decode.
