I've enjoyed making a ton of FT8 QSOs from 160 up to 6m. It's a blast. BTW. it reminds me of contesting without all the rules. Quick, simple QSOs great for awards.

Good analogy. The best part is that nobody is forced to use it, your ticket is not in jeopardy. No FCC rule making yet, as of this morning. Grin

Those that like the mode can enjoy it. Those that don't like the mode can enjoy not enjoying it. If only everything else in life was this straight forward. Grin

No, no, no.

First we have to go through a long, sterile debate with those who don't consider it "real" DXing and look down upon us that use it.  Or makes DXing too easy.  Or something.  Always have to have the killjoys.  It's just part of the process, because there's always a minority that think that a technical hobby cannot or should not change.

If we avoid that this time, we will have done something truly new.
