First FT4 QSOs Are in the Log
When I chose FT4 from the mode menu, I didn't have any frequencies defined for some reason. So I had to go into the settings, frequencies, and then right-click and restore defaults. Then I went to 20m FT4 and was pleased to see and hear traffic. I answered some calls and then made a few CQs of my own. I've logged 11 FT4 contacts so far including stateside, Europe, and Asia.
I'm using WSJT-X to send logs to Ham Radio Deluxe. HRD then sends automatically to eQSL, QRZ, and HRDlog.net. I send from QRZ to LOTW. One issue to note is that when WSJT-X sends the logged contact to HRD, it comes over as MFSK. I created a mode in HRD for FT4 and I'm correcting each one that I log before it sends over to the other logbook services. I've had some confirmation on QRZ and LOTW so I assume this practice will work until something comes along to fix this.
