[VHFcontesting] How to order

a couple things, first of all FT-8 does tune a few kHz so not sure a crystal controlled rig is the answer (I realize Herb was just joking,.. hah).. 2nd I agree that we are dangerously close to being able to click a button on the computer and then come back at the end of the contest to see how we scored.. Not MY idea of a great time.. BUT it is amazing technology and I'm sure people grumbled when SSB replaced AM in the vhf contests.. Having a hard time wrapping my brain around all this..

OK, I clued in.  FT-8 et al.  Fine modes.  Excellent technology.

Smells like cheating.

At the very least, the QSOs should count for less.  :-)
