locked CQ QSY #FT8


Harry Hall
 

I have found locking your TX box and setting your red TX marker on a clear open spot on the water fall works great.  If someone stays too close or right on top of your red marker then just move it to another clear spot on the water fall.  This also keeps you calling CQ on the person your trying to reach, and they will see you after they finish their current QSO.  I have found some bands with fewer traffic to work great vs 20 meters that is often

overwhelmed with many people calling.  I wish someone would assign another 20 meter freq for DX only just a suggestion hi hi K5HLH.

I keep my TX frequency the same and don't tx on the CQ frequency - WSJT setting

 

It is annoying when stations QSY to my CQ frequency to respond to my CQ then call CQ themselves on that frequency when the QSO is over, simply bad operating, you wouldn't do that on phone.

 

Working split with hold TX frequency much more convenient and considerate to others.

I have seen this on 20 meters as well...  I got shifted to OOB, but

caught it prior to transmit.

MIke,

This is from the WSJT-X user guide section 10.3

  • With Split operation activated on the File → Settings → Radio tab, in MSK144 and the fast JT9 submodes you can activate the spinner control Tx CQ nnn by checking the box to its right. The program will then generate something like CQ nnn K1ABC FN42 for your CQ message, where nnn is the kHz portion of your current operating frequency, in the range 010 to 999. Your CQ message Tx6 will then be transmitted at the calling frequency selected in the Tx CQ nnn spinner control. All other messages will be transmitted at your current operating frequency. On reception, when you double-click on a message like CQ nnn K1ABC FN42 your rig will QSY to the specified frequency so you can call the station at his specified response frequency.

Hi Mike,

It is a WSJT-X feature. Only place I have ever seen it used is for Meteor Scatter contacts on 50 MHz and up but don't see why it couldn't be used elsewhere.
The fact that it QSYed outside of the band  would not be desirable if your radio doesn't have a TX inhibit to prevent OOB operation.
