From Bernie – Editor of the Daily DX



I thought this might be helpful information to pass along to FT8 “newbies”. I
know you have already told people to use WSJT-X v1.9.1 so the first part may be

For anyone who wants to work KH1 on the FT8 DXpedition Fox/Hound mode, there
are several things you need to do to get ready.

• Make sure you have installed WSJT-X v1.9.1 on your computer.

• When you are chasing KH1, you need to go into "Hound" mode by
checking that box on the “Advanced” tab under WSJT-X File/Settings.

• Make your initial call as a Hound in the range of 1000 – 4000 Hz.

• See K1JT’s User Guide for more details on how the DXpedition mode works.

• Remember to uncheck “Hound” when you return to normal FT8 operations.

Also, very important, you need to add the FT8 DXpedition frequencies to your
WSJT-X program. This only takes a few minutes to do.

• Go to
where you will find the list of FT8 frequencies the DXpedition will be using.

• Now go to File/Settings in WSJT-X and click on the "Frequencies"

• Right click on the “Frequency” window and in the box that appears, you will
click on "Insert".

• Leave "All" for IARU Region, pick FT8 for mode (it is at the bottom
of the mode list), then insert the first frequency "3.567" and click "OK"
or just Enter. All you have to do after that is right click again and add the
next frequency on the list by highlighting over the last frequency you entered,
and repeat until all have been entered.
