Might be shiny - might be new - it sure does work these days.
PSK31 on 20M calling CQ for 2hrs netted 1 contact.
FT8 you need a big stick to keep the callers at bay.

FT8 is active just below JT65 on 40 meters 7.076. I've spotted them right on that frequency, too. That would be like psk31 and JT65 on the same frequency - very annoying. Also, I was chastised by a JT9 user not long ago for being just above the JT65 crowd on 20 meters. I was told I was interfering with their QSOs. In the words of brother Rodney, "why can't we all just get along"?
(All the local new hams here with HF privileges are 'ga-ga' over FT8. The new shiny bauble, as I have heard).
