Exclamation Soon to be released FT8 DXpedition Mode (rumored ~100 Qs/minute)

Here is an article by Joe Taylor, K1JT, the FT8 author. He discusses the new FT8 DXpedition Mode that will be used for the Baker Island DXpedition (June/July 2018). Also note that the radio pictured is a Flex Radio. Go Flex! 73, Dave K4EET

[Edit] The Q rate may be more like a few hundred Qs per hour. Not sure which is more accurate...

The draft manual says that Qs of 600 per hour will be possible. Wow! See:
