Re: No FT8 checkbox for mode


Thanks, Guary. I certainly do appreciate a helping hand. Sorry to sound so stupid. I’m talking about the logging window, and when you click on “mode” a window pops up that says BandMode selection. In the right hand side of that window under “mode” there are many modes listed but not FT8.
The other place I cannot find FT8 is when I click on the top menu under awards and select DXCC. When the window pops up there is a pulldown menu in the bottom left-hand corner that lists all of the modes, but FT8 is not among them. Thank you for your help.

Hello n2qlt.


What kind of checkbox would you like?  Where would you like it?  What would you like it to do?


Your email doesn’t make much sense.  Please try harder to explain your issue/s and we’ll try harder to help you.

Subject: [hamlogger] No FT8 checkbox for mode


I noticed that there is no checkbox for FT8 mode. If I use mode according to bandplan, it comes up with PSK31. And there is no way to enter FT8 if I want to make a manual log entry (that I can find). No big deal, when logging automatically with WSJT-X it does end up logging as FT8. But there is not a way to calculate DXCC stats, since there is no checkbox there either. Couldn't find anything in the help menu or by searching here. Has anyone found a way to deal with this?

One more thing, off subject. When messing with this issue, I clicked the wrong button apparently and logger32 moved all of my recent FT8 entries in the logbook window back to 1993. It didn't change anything in the loggings, just moved all of it far away. So I'm scratching my head here.

Any suggestions would be welcome!
