I

FT-8 is preferred mode in 2017 although I also love the rest of the WSJT digital modes as well as CW, SSB.

Soapbox: FT-8 excites me because it is the essence of what ham radio is all about.  It's about reaching the farthest with the least amount of power and least antenna. 

FT-8 pushes the limit of ham radio to see how far my station can go.  Per watt it goes farther than cw.

Working conditions currently consist of the following:

  • 3 element yagi on 60 ft tower for 20 meters
  • 56' vertical with four radials consisting of welded-wire-fencing laid on the ground, fed by a SGC SG-230 automatic tuner for 160  through 10 meters
  • 6 meter dipole at 39 feet
  • 15 meter end fed vertical dipole
  • 17 meter end fed vertical dipole
  • 30 meter end fed vertical dipole

Transceiver is Kenwood TS-480SAT
