40m wasn’t too good last night here. Made 9 contacts, but my head wasn’t into the contest.  Too much going on here the past few days what with putting almost 100 non-ham items on Eekbay.   

 

Did work one new 070 member (yippee !) which now puts me within 45 contacts of the 1000 LONP mark . At this rate I may reach that goal sometime in 2022, hi, hi !!

 

Will try to be around tonight after 0100 UTC.

The wider, 15 second signal you are observing is FT4.
It was meant to be a contesting version of FT8.
It is a faster exchange, wider and efficient, but IMHO totally useless for contesting. Not good in a crowded band...... just like FT8.
Nice mode when too many are on FT8 and I want easy pickings.
They are suppose to operate on 18.104 (FT4). 
As of this minute (02:40 UTC) on 20 Meters, each 30 second scroll produces about 5 Chinese, 4 JA's, a couple of Asiatic Russians, a KH6 and a ZL or VK.
Depressing. So goes life.

Almost undoubtedly FT8.

Hello ALL,

At 19:20 UTC on 17m ( 18.100 MHz USB ), there were numerous digital stations operating on 3/17 (Tues.).

Can someone please determine what exact digital mode, these 20 stations are operating.

I tried to decode them without any success. Please get back to me direct or on the reflector.

Have not operated digital in over a few years now..

Thanks !

John-
Looking at 18.100 at 19:43 UTC I'm seeing several FT8 traces.  While 18.100 used to be a PSK frequency, it was taken over when FT8 was introduced.  I also see some wider signals that are in the 15 second T/R cycle, and while I'm not sure what they are, they could be some variant of the WSJT-x modes.

If you are looking for PSK, some are now using 18.097.  But mostly, PSKers have just been chased off 17m.

18.100 has been infested by FT8 stations for about the past 2 years, driving off PSK31 stations .

Re: Unusual conditions on 40m

Being all alone out here on the West Coast and a big attenuator to my East (mountain), it is easier for me to work Asia and Oceania than Minnesota.
40 Meters has been outstanding from sun up till about noon.
The evil digital mode (FT8 😉 ) is full of JA's, BA's, DU's, KL7's and KH6's.

Looking at 40m right now and seeing a bunch of activity. Saw a station in MN and one in ND which is a bit unusual. May be a sign of better things to come. ..I hope !

Propagation seems better in last couple days, too. If guys can find signals they'll operate PS.

Also, I am working an FT817ND on 40 Meters QRP during the late afternoon hours. I am having a bit of luck working a few PSK contacts, Listen up for me I would appreciate it.
