Locked Re: Using WSJTX Waaterfall #FT8

A problem is that we cannot hear stations that are 50 - 1000 miles
away depending on the band. The best we can do is to try and if
unsuccessful move to another apparently clear frequency.

I didn't choose my words very carefully; we can never really know whether a frequency is in use before we transmit at all. Hopefully what I meant was clear enough: you're making an extended transmission on a frequency you've made no attempt to determine is clear. Your two TX cycles there may very well wipe out somebody else's QSO that was already underway before you began to transmit.

For some reason I can't seem to get myself signed off. Maybe this time. :-)
