Joe Taylor Comments Today

Here is what Joe posted on the WSJT-X group today    Highlights are mine.

I draw your particular attention to the following sentences found on page 1:
############################################################################
Please note: DXpedition Mode is not yet ready for “production” use.
Until WSJT-X v1.9.0 is fully released, this mode should be used only in
controlled test situations. Please remember to send us your test results.

....

Subject to future revision, we are temporarily suggesting the following
frequencies for testing DXpedition mode: 1.8265, 3.567, 7.066, 10.1405,
14.105, 18.095, 21.067, 24.911, 28.067 MHz.
############################################################################

The first warning is included because several operators or groups have
been trying, against our advice, to use the not-yet-complete DXpedition
Mode in real pileup situations. This misuse of a WSJT-X beta release
(or of code taken from the WSJT-X development branch) has been
counter-productive, to say the least.

The second item copied above is the result of early efforts to identify
suggested FT8 DXpedition Mode operating frequencies for each HF band
that will minimize interference with other modes. We will welcome
thoughtful suggestions that might improve this list of suggested
frequencies.
