WOW...Is the old magic band active today...Good contacts US to Europe on 50.313 MHz in the FT8 digital mode, looks like I may need to get the CAT cable for the FT-847 and a good sound card setup and try it out...

And a few stray calls on the 50.125 USB calling channel.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

A band that is seriously underrated.

Humans have a very short memory span.
