Yeah , I am now one of those guys. Hey who doesn't love a mode where you can hit the " CQ Button" , go grab a cold beer and when you return wella , a QSO to log!
Was messing with the FT8 mode @ 10w on 40m for a couple of hours after midnight today. Each of the dots represents a country I was hear in during that time!
Picked up an FT850 and a Sound Link just to put together something that was CAT, an easy way to interface to the PC for the PSK modes as well as soemthing that I could easily access over the Internet if I choose to do so. Originally I was thinking a Linear but decided that I would get more enjoyment out to the new rig and digital modes! Maybe next year I will go QRO!
