World Wide #FT8 update - WSJT-X 2.0.0

Please update now!!

The current General Availability (GA) release is WSJT-X 2.0.0


The FT8 and MSK144 protocols have been enhanced in a way that is not backward compatible with older program versions.  The new protocols become the world-wide standards starting on December 10, 2018, and all users should upgrade to WSJT-X 2.0 by January 1, 2019.  After that date, only the new FT8 and MSK144 should be used on the air.

I just made the update and see lot of FT8 signals on 60m, only a few are decoded.....those that are aware of the update. Although it was announced a while ago that today december 10 is the world wide update day. Please update now....

I guess it will take a few days....

Important to write that this new version features a more sensitive WSPR decoder.

    1. Vorige week? Bestaat niet, dat is de RC5 versie. Dit is de algemene versie en is vanaf gisteren te downloaden. En inderdaad zitten de meesten nog met de oude versie maar dat zal de komende dagen wel veranderen. 73, Bas

    2. Okay, nog nieuwer dus. Tja, dan moet de hele goegemeente wel over op de nieuwe software anders wordt het lastig werken.

  2. You are a very obedient and observant operator! I don't like Americans telling me what to do, and anyway hadn't heard of the upate (also, I dislike updating software!)

    I am, though, happy to be told what to do by the Dutch, so will update right now!
