Frequencies are not the conventional FT8 operating frequencies and are subject to change, subject to conditions. FT8 DXpedition Mode uses modulation frequency from 300 to 4000Hz. As of January, Macau was ranked as the 93 rd most wanted DXCC entity. I did string up a 20m dipole about 6' off the ground this afternoon and was greeted by a huge pileup on FT8 mode, despite my high SWR and terrible antenna location. However rig spec. From his QRZ. Symbol rates and occupied bandwidths are the same as before, and false-decode rates are significantly lower. We will broadcast any changes in the operating frequency plan, if necessary, during the DXpedition as best we can. It allows a deep decoding on each band. Also: don't forget to make sure your computer's clock is precisely synched. XIT : Xmitter Incremental Tuning is the ability to shift the transmit frequency of a transceiver away from the receive frequency. As summary, it is a fact that we have to use split mode on 160m anyway. We will use DX-pedition mode for all bands except 160m. Here are a couple of related items that I ran across yesterday. For the novice that is on 10 meters at 28. We can see you but the FT8 software does NOT see you.
