    Could you please add the new FT8 mode to the list of available modes?
    It is a digital mode, similar to JT65 as far as standard exchange and signal reports.

    QRZ adopts the latest revision of ADIF Specification protocol; see: www.adif.org

    Would it be possible to add mode T10 to the list of available modes too? This is a mode available in the JTDX program.

    www.adif.org controls what is listed. Logbook programs then adopt the latest revision for uniform ADIF file protocol,

    It is looks possible to log FT8 if it is inserted through the API but not through the drop-down menu in the site's UI.

    As stated previously, FT8 is not yet listed in the latest revision of the ADIF specification. Hence for standardization, it is not listed in QRZ mode choices.

    Request this from ADIF officials.
