Hi

I assume the sample freq of 14.080 was just that as the rtty boys will not be happy if we start walking all over what is generally accepted as rtty space (at least in Europe). I did like the mention that they may look for the lower SN might give the qrp boys a chance.

Subject: [wsjt-devel] FT8 DXpedition Mode

Hi all,

You have probably heard something about recent efforts to develop a
special "FT8 DXpedition Mode" in WSJT-X.  This message aims to bring you
up-to-date on our progress, and generally to make our plans more widely
known.

The basic goal of *FT8 DXpedition Mode* is to enable DXpeditions to make
FT8 QSOs at the highest possible rates.  We have been working together
with members of the Baker Island (KH1/KH7Z) group.  Their planned
expedition will take place in June-July 2018.  Like most major
DXpeditions, this one will almost certainly make a majority of its QSOs
using SSB and CW.  However, the group is well aware of the rapid rise of
FT8 popularity, and they plan to use FT8 as well.

Making FT8 QSOs with KH1/KH7Z will require the DXpedition and everyone
trying to work them to use a new, yet-to-be-released version of WSJT-X.

We have tested the new program features on the air several times, and
found them to work well.  Another test run will probably be scheduled in
a month or so.  There will be plenty of advance publicity inviting
others to upgrade to a "Release Candidate" called WSJT-X v1.9.0-rc1, and
to join in trying to work one or more specific "pseudo-DXpedition"
stations at a certain time and frequency.  In this way, we hope to
continue shaking bugs out of the program and generally to improve its
usability -- both for the DX operator and those seeking to work him.

FT8 DXpedition mode includes a number of new and innovative features.
For further details on what's in store, I draw your attention to a draft
of the "FT8 DXpedition Mode User Guide" posted here:

With best wishes,
