The other day, I bagged 2 atnos on 20m ft8 with my flex 6300. Afghanistan and Bhutan, both on 20m from Detroit, MI.

DXCC in 5 months including my slacking off and business trips.

Dave Gipson - KC9IE

FLEX 6600 is good on FT8! Look MOM no wires!

James Kennedy - WU5E

I started with FT8 in June. Just got the last state for WAS FT8 tonight.

Got 8B-WAS in about a year and 1/2 (FT8 only) (waiting for VT to QSL on 80). As far as Flex vs. another radio, I have to say it’s nice having digital audio all the way through. No signalink to adjust audio levels with.

Mark Steiner - K7QDX

Easiest to set up for all digital modes. And the RX is superb!

Plug and Play FT8

No need for sound cards or extra cables.
With Flex, FT8 works like magic.

Less set up = more contacts

Add SliceMaster to automatically launch WSJT-X when you switch to digital on the Flex.

Hear through the noise

FlexRadio has some of the best receivers on the planet. This allows you to receive signals where other ham radio transceivers cannot.

FT8 anywhere with SmartLink™ remote*

With SmartLink™ remote feature you can operate FT8 from your PC anywhere you have a broadband connection. No additional setup required.

Open up your bandwidth

FlexRadios are not limited to 3Khz (or less) Transmit or Receive bandwidth like other HF radios. With a FLEX-6000 series radio you can open up your RX and TX bandwidths up to 10khz if you desire.

1500 Watt FT8 on 160m – 6m!

Punch through on FT8 with power
  • 100W = +50 dBm
  • 1000W = +60 dBm
  • 1500W = +62.7 dBm

FT8 – Tipping Point for Ham Radio?

This is a view from NASA of the sun today, October 9, 2018, and I am making 10m DX contacts one after another.  Zero sunspots but working DX on FT8!  Is FT8 creating a “tipping point” for amateur radio at the very bottom of the solar cycle? Several years ago I was captivated by a book written by Malcolm Gladwell called, The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference.  Merriam-Webster defines tipping point as, “the critical point in a situation, process, or system beyond which a significant and often unstoppable effect or change takes place.” [...]
