I have never looked at the waterfall on ANY band and seen FT8 "packed." What I see is adequate passband and adequate signal spacing for everyone right now as it stands. You are creating a problem that simply does not exist. suggesting a way to alter something that you have never used quite a trick. Do you even understand the software, what it does, and how it works, or are you psychic? "Looks packed and LOUD." is some statement. The way to make an FT8 signal "LOUD" is to use 1500 watts. After all, it is a weak signal mode. Many, if not most operators using FT8 don't know what they are doing. That's why they transmit all over the top of each other when the frequency next to the one you are using has no one using it. Most operators who use the mode have never even bothered to read the instruction manual that Dr. Taylor and company put a great deal of effort into writing. If you have not operated FT8, how can you suggest a solution to a problem? Especially a problem does not even exist? What makes you an expert on a mode you admitted that you have never used? It appears that you are making a lot of assumptions about something you know absolutely nothing about. Most of the problems in ham radio are caused by "experts" that do not have the first clue.
