    Anyone using this? Tuned into the suggested freq but all is quiet on the bands there. Wanted to check it out.

    Isn't it interesting that people wanted so much to ragchew using something with the same sensitivity of standard FT8, they got it, and nothing much happened?

    Propagation is not much of an excuse in this case, is it?

    Back to FT8, I guess.;)

    I might throw out some CQ's on 40m later.

    I have tried JS8 several times, including in the middle of the JS8 QSO Party. The heartbeat function tells me I am hearing okay and that others are hearing me, so my system is working, but no contacts, not even one. CW=60,000+ FT8=5000+ JS8=0

    I heard about 30 stations on 7078 USB last night.

    I tried it when it started but had to go back weekly to get another link so it would work and got frustrated with that and never went back. Now when searching for rtty it's all quiet in the area. Except sometimes 14.080 has ft-4.

    I have it all setup and working, but I never hear or see anything on it. The test continues.

    Here are the 40m JS8 signals over the past 60 minutes reported by www.pskreporter.info. Wonder what is wrong with your setup?

    I played with it several times,and I agree with the others. It's pretty dead compared to ft8.
