Schade um das gut gemachte VarAC..minimale Communikation.. es ueberwiegt hier die FT8 Mentalitaetmit Tippen habens die nicht sonur klicken das ist einfacher
I have a very different impression: FT8 is disliked for the unability to communicate. I met several hams on varac which changed from FT8 for that reason. Had very good QSOs. 73 de DJ0CHE
Dear Gary, HA3CCs point was that there is still a certain FT8 mentality here whereby HAMs prefer on clicking through a QSO rather typing.
Just daybreak here but already have had QSO's on both 10M and 15M VarAC.
For some ops but not all of us. Plenty of real QSO opportunities, I mostly stay on 17-10M
In some fashion you are right. This morning I was in contact with Reunion Island on 10m (FR1GZ), well, it was a ping contact with fairly good reception (-04 db), however, I was wondering where all those other HAMs are active. FR1GZ was the only 10m station visible on psk reporter.
