A35JT 160m FT8 Activity – Video

Andrew VK5AKH was a first time FT8 operator on this expedition.  It all started however when he tuned to 160m early in the expedition during the US morning greyline.

Here is the screen recording my first ever attempt to run FT8 in normal mode, was not expecting that many stations to start calling… was a lot of fun running FT8 on 160m and a bit of learning curve… now to learn morse code before the next DXpedition and work a few more  de VK5AKH

By the end of it he was running three stations concurrently using VNC to network the other two laptops back to the central Station 1 machine. With synchronized calling three bands could be active without local interference.
