    FT8 Guidance for working 3Y0I

    FT-8 Guidance for working 3YØI WSJT-X Fox / Hound

    We are asking everyone to follow these guidelines for calling 3y0i on FT-8. You will get through faster by using these simple guidelines:
    •To avoid confusion please use WSJT-X Version 1.9.1
    •We will use DX-pedition mode for all bands except 160m
    •Configure the software and radio per the WSJT-X and your radio’s installation instructions.
    •Do not use 3YØI as your first FT8 on the air experience
    •Your operating frequency control should be under CAT (rig) control from the program – NOT manually from your VFO. You must add to WSJT-X.
    •Your WSJT-X software must be configured as a Hound.
    •Call us ONLY if you are able to decode 3YØI responding to other Hounds or if you decode a CQ from 3YØI. You may initiate a calling sequence by double clicking 1 on any 3YØIresponse.
    •3YØI will be transmitting BELOW 1,000 Hertz. You MUST select an open calling frequency between 1,000 – 4000 Hertz.
    •Once 3YØI replies to a Hound with RR73 the QSO is completed and logged.
    •The Hound does not need to send 73 to complete the QSO.

    Note 1: This assumes you have WSJT-X configured for Double Click on call sets Tx enable

    Note 2: If you don’t complete a QSO within five minutes after being called by 3YØI that you should restart a new QSO.
