This is a really quick how-to for IC-7100 owners who might like to try FT8. It took about 8 minutes from start to finish to get my setup on the air.
We have an incredible amount of technology today available to us, in order to make a QSO on the air. The FT8 software is a masterpiece. The IC-7100 is a “rig in a box”. And even the PC in front of me is something to behold. Being able to produce a simple video and publish it like this, is really mind blowing.
The real magic, however, is still there, without most of that tech – I can get on the radio and have a QSO with a stranger who has the same hobby that I do: ham radio.
As always, enjoy the hobby, and feel free to comment to me, here, or via my email address at QRZ.com
