    That is EXACTLY WHY I refuse to use computer logging!! I use Paper ONLY!!! If I had a computer error, the logbook file could be ALL GONE!!!!

    If someone broke into my house, the LOGBOOK would be the very LAST THING he would take.
    Conversely, if there is an Approaching firestorm and I have to Evacuate, the LOGBOOK and QSL BOOK are the first things I carry out the door. Then I come back for the cats

    Watching them for the first time on 17m tonight. I'm amazed at how many didn't read the ft8 contact instructions.

    Yeah, I'm just sitting here watching on 30 meters,.... lots of people calling with no CQ before.
    most of them are in the "restricted|" window.... NONE of them are in the log.

    all though, I will say that the CQ's are few and far apart, they must have their reply number turned down to a low number.

    From the KH7Z latest blog....

    "Operations are now in full swing. Pileups have been good, with lots of contacts going into our logs. However, Baker island needs your help on FT8. Fully half the callers are using the wrong software and mode. You must have WSJT-X v 1.9.1, and go into advanced settings, and choose hound mode. Please make sure to sync your clock too."

    Please note, they can not answer you with the old software and setup and you will never get in the log in ft8 mode!

    Also, one thing I keep seeing on the DX spotter sites is reports of pirate stations that appear to be taking advantage of those that have not upgraded the software and following the operating procedures. I suspect that if you operated KH1/KH7Z with the old software on the standard frequency (or maybe even the new software that is not in hound mode), you operated with a pirate station.

    I dislike WSJTX and hate the fox/hound mode. Twice I called them and got a signal response fairly quickly, but NEVER got a RR73. I will not be trying again, either I'm in the log or I'm not.

    I am running V1.9.0 WSJT-X.

    And have Baker Island on 2 bands 18/20M FT8

    Very easy to set up Settings/Advanced click Hound mode/Radio click fake it/Frequency right click Insert desired freq per there band plan.

    Again MAKE SURE CLOCKS ARE SYNCED, And that you are TRANSMITTING above 1000.

    So far confirmed on 20M waiting for latest update for other bands.
