    It's not a QSO, it's a contact.

    The problem is some people see a contact mode as a QSO mode, and when it does not do what they want, they poo on it.

    Use the right mode for your interests.

    I have a Dream!!
    and it is coming closer!
    I go downstairs, turn on the radio shack and mouse click Start on the Station Laptop
    in a few days I come back to find the laptop has worked 164 countries and 36 zones! Then there is a DX contest and the in that the laptop scored big time!! It automatically checked DX summit to find new ones and rotated the beam accordingly.

    Congratulations, My Laptop had a wonderful time in the contest!!

    That's what FT-0 will be: ZERO operator activity!! The OP is busy watching SPONGEBOB!!

    When is the bashing for the cw ops that use a keyboard going to start? Is there a difference?

    This is par for the course - and it's generally the same three or four folks making the derogatory posts.

    When DXpeditions start using the new mode, along side CW, SSB, RTTY the fervor will die down - the same way that Fox and Hound for FT8 did.

    FT-0 will T/R in less than 0 seconds. Contesting scores will go to infinity and beyond!

    People are going to do what they're going to do, work whatever modes they're going to work--and ham radio will either survive, or it won't.

    There's no point worrying about it. Pursue what interests you and ignore everything else.
