Second beta version of WSJT-X released

| March 2, 2018

A second beta version of WSJT-X version 1.9.0 has been released.

This is to allow further field testing of the new FT8 DXpedition mode, designed to enable DXpeditions to make FT8 contacts at very high rates.

The team is inviting the amateur radio community to participate in a public test run of FT8 DXpedition mode.

Test times and frequencies are Tuesday, 6 March 2018 at 2300UTC on 14.080MHz; on the 7th at 0000UTC on 10.141MHz, at 0100UTC on 7.080MHz, and 0200UTC on 3.585MHz.

Frequencies are not the conventional FT8 operating frequencies and are subject to change, subject to conditions.

Last-minute changes will be posted on the internet.
