Hi Folks!

Join me in FST4 160m. This evening 19:00-22:00 UTC I will call CQ and listen:
1. Using WSJT-X v2.3.0 rc2
2. Mode=FST4 Single Decode
3. Frequency=1839.00 KHz
4. Tx=Rx=1500 Hz
5. F Tol=100 Hz
6. T/R=60 Sec
7. Radio bandpass filter=3000 Hz
8/ Please call me and report if I do not answer. I will report what I hear.
73's

This period looks promising within EU, AF, and AS, but not for NA. How about 1 hour +/- your sunrise, which allows for propagation to NA and SA?

I'd love to see all 160M operation move from FT8 to FST4. K1JT has observed that FST4-60 is 1.7 dB more sensitive than JT9. I've missed a lot of FT8 QSOs to EU from my QTH near San Francisco that these new modes have the potential to complete!

OK Jim

I am using 160m FT8 almost every morning. On Oct 28, 2020, had the first
and only one 160m QSO with the USA with a new antenna. I hope for many more.
Starting tomorrow morning , I will be active on FST4 too.
