"There are many ham radio opinion blogs on the Internet that strongly or
sometimes sarcastically take one or the other stance. There is even an
Internet poll asking, “Is FT8 damaging amateur radio?” At this moment it
is 52% yes, 45% no and 3% undecided. All of the articles and
videos I have seen agree on one undeniable fact – FT8 has since its
introduction in June of 2017 achieved “killer app” or tipping point
status. Some think it will kill amateur radio and others believe that
such innovations give the hobby new life.
