FT8 Digital Mode Club

Quite a number of members of our facebook-group asked for an introduction and/or links for FT8.

There are plenty of very good websites and there is a lot of information available, so we did not want to re-invent the wheel but rather publish some (what we think) useful links.

 

The official WSJT-website of Dr. Joe Taylor, K1JT with the latest full-versions for Windows, Mac and Linux, the user-guides in English, German and Swedish and all the release notes:
