Just got the BitX-40 working on FT-8 2 days ago! So far, I've worked 12 states (AL, AZ, GA, IL, MI, MS, NC, NJ, OH, VA, WA, WV) and Ontario. Not bad for only 5 watts!
I've seen W1LY on FT-8, but have yet to work him. Anyone else on here using FT-8 on the BitX? Look for me or let me know you're on and I'll look for you.
In a couple of days, I'll publish the VOX operated interface I'm using between the PC and the rig.
