FT8 DXpedition ModeUser Guide - we will do F/H!!

You must upgrade to the latest version of WSJT-X. 

You must set your clock to <1 second accuracy. 

You MUST connect your radio to your computer via RS232

WSJT-X must be able to automatically QSY your radio. 

You MUST enable Split operation.  (F2, Radio, Split Operation, "Rig" or "Fake It".) 

We will use special DXpedition frequencies for FT8. 

You can add these frequencies to the WSJT-X configuration (F2, Frequencies). 

You MUST use DXpedition mode (F2, Advanced, Special, Hound). 

Never try to call on our frequency or below 1000 Hz. 

Watch for QRM on your transmit frequency (red marker). Use Shift-Click to move when necessary

It will often be best to call using a high frequency (up to 4000 Hz).
