WSJT-X Tip #2: Call 1st

QSO's using FT8 are often fast and furious.  When conditions are favorable it is easy to end up in a pileup situation with many stations calling you at once.  WSJT-X includes a helpful feature that enables the software to automatically respond to the first decoded responder to your CQ.  Just check the box labelled, "Call 1st".

This is very helpful to keep up with the pace of QSO's.  It is not intended to be a substitute for an operator actively controlling their station.

WSJT-X Tip #1: JTAlert

An outstanding companion to WSJT-X is JTAlert.  JTAlert monitors the stations you receive and provides feedback to help you choose which stations to select for a contact.  



Helpful alerts include:
  • Identifies stations you worked before
  • Color codes stations that are calling CQ in green
  • Color codes stations in grey that are in the middle of a QSO
  • Flags wanted callsigns
  • Flags wanted US States
  • Flags DXCCs
  • Ignores callsigns
 JTAlert is a must-have companion for anyone using WSJT-X.
