I know lots of operators are making a big deal about FT8Call, but for the most part I think people are ignoring it's true purpose. This mode is an attempt to provide an efficient weak signal messaging apparatus, for weak signal operators out in the field. It is a utility, taking the efficient narrow bandwidth capabilities of FT8, combining it with the Network and messaging capabilities of FSQ.
In this video we have two stations, one is a field station in Lapland, the other Maritime Mobile in the south of the UK. There are also other stations interacting in the network, while this qso takes place.
