    Has anyone found an easy to work JA stations on 160 meter FT8 with WSJT-X or JTDX? It requires a really good split. Thanks...

    I had to wait for a solution. The latest version of JTDX added 160M JA support. Will try to make it work tonight.

    Xmit 1840, rx 1908?

    I tried that initially and got some odd results. Looks like JTDX is doing the same thing, so I'll see what happens.

    I need to find a quiet location to try and rx on 1908. Always have like S8 noise floor here. Even doing rx spotting on WSPR the number of stations I "see" (report) are low numbers. Tx is okay, rx is my weak spot.

    Silly question, but why don't we (US stations) just TX on 1908 as well? I thought 160 had no data subband. Can't they Rx anywhere? Sounds like it would be easier for all involved.

    Voice activity occurs not too infrequently in the area of 1908 ...

    I have wondered the same thing. Data is allowed there. Past practice or voice use maybe?

    Easy, if you radio allows stereo (2 channel) headphone receive (as in hearing both sides of a pile up). In WSJT-X setting - audio, chose right channel for 1908 receive. If you have a K3, use subreceive on 1908. When finished with 1908, go back to left channel.
