Here is a new digital mode that comes to you from the makers of JT-9 and JT-65.. Called FT-8 (Franke-Taylor design, 8FSK modulation), it’s a weak signal mode that is not as sensitive to JT-65/9 but definitely something that will work when voice and CW will not.
The following video is an introduction to someone who has never heard of it or never has used JT-65 before. This is great for poor conditions, QRP, or contests on digital. Not as sensitive as JT-65/9, but twice as fast. FT8 mode can be done the same way you do PSK or RTTY or JT-65. A radio, an interface, and the software
It may not be for everyone, but I am certainly going to try it.
