I use a MacBook Pro and I will tell you the cable is the most important part when using CHIRP. If you try with one of the lesser expensive cables you will just turn around and by the slightly higher priced one anyway.  I run my 857D with it and have programed a Baofeng with it also.

I do.   A better antenna is always the best bang for the buck. But.... If you're doing the best your locale will allow, the a boost ain't bad. 

That depends on cost of amp and antenna. To get 10 db with a HF antenna in a tall order but 10 db with a amp is pretty easy.

Antenna will soon be a cobweb, the best I can do at the moment.  QTH is in Illinois - DX can be just a little challenging here, so I have discovered.....

If you put 1KW into a dummy load, it's still a dummy load...

if you are using a dummy load....

The standoffs on Ebay would qualify but the DXE item certainly would not.

Am I missing something?

Nope plus DXE is overpriced as usual and caters to the $$ hams.

A trip to HD or other box store should yield several ideas. I do use electric fence insulators for my Beverages since a close 1" pass by a tree has no effect; hammer in the nail and move to the next one.

Kobweb Update:

Assembly nearing completion! 

Rooftop tripod (5' Rohn and 5' mast) are here.  Still need to drill the center hub for 1-1/4" clamps.   

Got the antenna itself built and strung up.  Put it up on top of an 8' fiberglass ladder and tuned it up with the MFJ analyzer.  20m meters didn't want to go below 1.7:1, but we will see how things behave once it's in place.  One can always cheat it a little with the tuner in the shack.

I bought a TYT MD-2017 at OKC Ham Holiday yesterday and am having problems running the CPS 2017 programming software.  I get a malware warning immediately after installing it, and my virus software (Webroot Secure Anywhere) immediately quarantines the files.  I also run Malware Bytes Pro and it doesn't complain, although I guess it's possible that Webroot gets rid of it before Malware Bytes has a chance.  I think it is a false positive, but hate to take a chance.  Any suggestions?  I have downloaded the software from a couple of different sources with same results from each.

Glad to see that  the two major logging sites for most DXers are being careful and not just jumping in on every new mode...  They are probably waiting for the software to get out of beta...  Wink

Previous messages elsewhere in internet land, mentioned that FT8 was to have been added to the ADIF standard last week, but K1JT asks for the software to be in General Availability status before the mode is added.

Just found this discussion. I appreciate the IC-7300/TS-590SG comparision. I've owned the TS-590SG for around one year. I work mostly 40 meter SSB where I have a wire beam farm for 40M.

I'm on a quest to upgrade my receiver. I want low noise floor, strong close-in rejection, excellent noise fighting tools.

I prefer a built in waterfall/scope.

So I kind of look at the Sherwood performance from the top down.

Top of my list (2 rigs not out yet):
Flex RADIO 6600m
Second: IC-7610
Third: fully loaded K3S with P3
I also include the FTDX-5000, with a P3 or LP-pan, etc.
The quest and research goes on.

Let this thread become a list of which logging programs, and which online logbooks, are ready
to accept the JT8 mode.

I have heard that is ready to accept FT8 entries.
I have also heard that Log4OM is also FT8 ready now.

What about
What about Ham Radio Deluxe logbook?
Does anyone know if ARRL is even starting to work on LOTW yet?

Please reply with other programs and logs that already support FT8.
