Here's a quick preview of f4exb's new FT8 demodulator on 2m

Hi all,

yes, shortwave bands are way more active. VHF and up are dead here too :D

About that map image, I'd like to propose a new locator-mode for display with FT8Demod * and maybe future ones too...
I think that general idea is obvious. Right now I simply replaced 'antenna' icon with 25% opacity green square, but for a proper representation (to fill the cell) each point would have to be geoprojected onto QTHgrid and mapped with many more than 4 steps of intensity to reflect activity (ideally with some kind of grandient I guess) This would probably require some kind of overlay over osm/mapbox. Are custom vector layers even possible in QtMap? I don't know really... Do you think it is doable? Would you consider this?

*- on that ocassion I'd like to thank Edouard for this latest demod and for entire SDRangel endeavor, and to you Jon for expanding it further.
