Prop maps tip.

Post by Paul_Logan »

Since a high proportion of Amateur activity on 50 mhz has moved from Phone and CW to FT8 - use the logger map which has the greatest volume of FT8 reports:

That's PSKR. https://pskreporter.info/pskmap.html

The most widely used FT8 software *automatically* reports to that site, not others.

You can also watch reports from near you and filter out those more distant.

On Thursday before and during my Transatlantic reception another popular site was showing a smallish amounth of TA activity on 6. PSKR was showing fairly substantial activity.

That's partly why I was beaming west. Although I usually do even at the slightest hint of activity.

Anyway that's my 2 cents. It may be of use to some.

84% of contacts on the 50 MHz band during the period April 2020 - March 2021 as reported to the ClubLog website were FT8.
