No DX to chase these days unless you run FT-8

Personally I'm steering clear of FT-8. I have to plead a lot of ignorance about the mode but from what little I've read about FT-8 it takes all of the human element out of the sport. I'll just stick with CW.

Kind'a irritates me that what takes a lot of time and effort to accomplish (i.e.: working all available countries in the world) is child's play using FT-8. It's computer working computer. No humans involved.

Think about the difficulty of making DXCC on 160. Is it fair now to allow FT-8 contacts count towards DXCC?

Again I'm lacking a lot of insight about the mode but in the mean time I'm steering clear.
