What is the meaning of FT4 on satellites???? I always thought that FT4 was for very low signals, poor propagation and precarious setups....

Concur that I’ve tested FT4 not only on CAS-4A and 4B, XW-2A and 2B, JO-97 but also EO-88 with very low power setting.

A consensus of a frequency would be great as right now I’m only hearing my own echo, still looking for my first QSO on FT4 via sat :)
