A beta release of WSJT-X, version
1.8.0-rc1, includes a new FT8 mode, featuring a faster turnaround, and
it’s already showing up on the bands. According to the notes for
the candidate release, FT8 offers “sensitivity down to -20 dB on the
AWGN channel,” and contacts four times faster than JT65 or JT9. An
auto-sequencing feature offers the option to respond automatically to
the first decoded reply to your CQ.
