Update July 9, 2024: K8R is pleased to announce the first Super Fox QSO was made with W7YED this morning (local) on 15 mtrs. The remote operator was Don, N1DG. Don also says “we will start at 19:00 UTC in earnest on 21.091 today”.

Update July 9, 2024: The new FT8 mode SuperFox (with SuperHounds) is expected (per one report) to be used by K8R on American Samoa July 10-25. This is per wsjt-devel@lists.sourceforge.net

Probably don't attempt this new release on an old computer. Expect to read the User Guide first.

Looking ahead, the mode could be used on the Jarvis DXpedition N5J August 5-17.

--73, Glenn, AF8C 

Update July 8, 2024: Already QRV. Dates now are July 7-22, 2024.

DX-World publishes: From July 10 – 25, look for K8R to again be active from American Samoa, primarily testing out all systems on all bands; CW, SSB and FT8 ahead of the Jarvis Island DXpedition. Also participation in the IARU contest. Actual signal reports will be appreciated, says George AA7JV.
