Re: FT4 and FT8 by band


The ARRL should be providing services and things that the members want.  If the members desire FTX tracking and FTX awards and there is a high demand, then the ARRL should be looking at ways to satisfy this desire and sell more awards.  Right?

The more awards offered the more they can "sell".  I assume that once the infrastructure is in place that awards bring in a nice sum of funds constantly.

I think this is an area where the League could improve and more more proactive.  FTX was going to be huge and it is not going away. 

The technology needs to be built to easily allow the addition of new awards/modes.  The hobby is constantly changing and the League is usually slow to respond to these changes.

OK.  Maybe expecting ARRL/LoTW to keep track at that fine a resolution for everyone is asking a bit much, but as I said, I don't use any digital mode except RTTY ... well, and CW.

I suppose that it matters as much as being able to see your Cloer or Olivia contacts on a specific band.  I suspect a high percentage of a particular digital mode users track WAS, or even DXCC, in that mode and even on a specific band.  I mean, really, what is the point in any digital transaction?
