Compiling WSJT-X for FT8 Mode

I have just completed compiling the alpha software for WSJT-X revision 7812 on both computers in the shack. This adds the new mode FT8 to the suite of others digital modes by Joe Taylor K1JT and others. It was for most part uneventful except for a QT5 print error that was googled and defeated. There are forums on the web and facebook , and videos on youtube that cover it all … If you are into the PSK, FSK, MSK and other digital modes take a run at FT8.

Just upgraded to the WSJT-X Version 1.8.0 RC3 executable, it works great. NO COMPILING REQUIRED.

WSJT-X Version 1.8.0 RC3 is now available … There is an article and download in on
