This is seriously the most exciting thing I've done with

I only regret wasting so much time and effort on trying to get a homebrew interface working when I could have been having contact and not getting bored and frustrated.

@rimugu JS8call?

not yet, but I plan to now I know the basic principle and setup is working.

@M0YNG for me, FT8 is thrilling. The contacts you can make with a modest setup are mind blowing. Nothing I've done in the hobby has compared so far

@jboverf @M0YNG Agree. Yesterday, after a long day, I switched on the radio at around 10.30pm thinking 20m was long dead to find some ft8 activity.

And my 15W signals went all the way to the other side of the planet to W6OAT.
