Yaesu FT-991 and FT8

Post by Ant »

I went to a club meeting in the week where they did a demonstration with FT8. The sounds the radio made was something scientific, beautiful robot like sounds, like music being transmitted from space.

I've had no interest in FT8 until now - I now want extra terrestrial like sounding, sounds, coming from my radio operating area. Imagine the looks on peoples faces when their ears are bathed in this mystical audio.

So, I have an FT-991, how do I go about using FT-8?
