locked Re: Using WSJTX Waaterfall #FT8

Hi all,

Anyone NOT using the waterfall should not be running FT8, as it will only cause QRM...
Even on a busy band, you need to ensure you are not transmitting over someone else, or you simply risk not being heard.

It's right up there with calling a DX station on their QRG!

I watch the waterfall all the time. It tells me if there's another station on, or close, to my offset and which stations are very loud, and splattering, or when a weak signal pops up.
Possibly on very busy frequencies, like 20M, it may be of less use, but on VHF and UHF it's still useful to me.
