    FT8 is a mode in the WSJT-X software developed by Dr Joe Taylor K1JT. In this video I show how to get started and make contacts with FT8, introduction for new beginners and even a pro tip how I know from a quick glance if the bands are open.

    I'm going to start this post off with a request.. We know that some of you love FT8 and some of you wholeheartedly and firmly dislike it. Can I ask, for the sake of our moderators, that you keep your discourse respectful and reasonable? (I know it's a lot to ask of some of you knuckleheads!)

    Thanks in advance and 73!
