- 60 meters: Operating guidelines for FT8
Re: 60 meters: Operating guidelines for FT8

So if I tune my radio to channel 3 @5357.0 mhz with a center frequency of
5358.5 mhz using FT8 . The FT8 modulation scheme is 8-FSK i.e. an 8-bit
transmission using 8 different audio. The tones separated by
just 6.25 Hz, giving an overall transmission bandwidth under
optimal conditions of 50 Hz , so my question is with a data BW
of 50hz then with a BW for the channel of 2.8 khz should it
not be very easy to be in overall BW compliance ????

I’m not aware of any complaints by the NTIA against radio amateurs
for using FT8 on 60m.
The volunteer monitor program nor the FCC are sending out
violation notices. I keep abreast of enforcement issues and I’ve
asked numerous departments at ARRL. This isn’t a concern with
ARRL doesn’t have any awards for 60m contacts. So anyone doing 60m
contacts there does it for their own enjoyment.
