    WSJT-X - Contesting Version - Practice Contest

    Joe, K1JT posted announcement of a dry-run to test WSJT-X in a contest setting. The post was to the WSJT-X mailing list, but it's about contesting, so it's likely relevant to readers of this list, as well. Upcoming versions of the WSJT-X software will have the ability to make some contest exchanges, and I'm sure the WSJT-X development team could benefit from the collective expertise of long-time contesters. Here's an excerpt from the announcement:
    A one-hour "practice contest" will be held tomorrow (Wednesday evening, NA time) using the FT8 mode and the ARRL RTTY Roundup rules.

    Date and time: Thursday, 25 October 0200-0300 UTC

    Dial frequency 7.078 (and higher, in 2 kHz increments, if too much QRM). Everyone works everyone.

    To participate you must use WSJT-X 2.0.0-rc3
