I've noted an unknown (to me) signal several times in the FT8 band region: about 250 Hz wide with 8 channels, each about 10 Hz wide.
I've seen it on 40M and 20M. What is this mode?

I have RFI on 80, 40 and 30M each night from sunset to sunrise every day. Can I send a video of my IC-7300 panadapter as evidence?

It's ONLY from sunset to sunrise.

I’ll try to describe it…the signal is every 100 Hz, the frequency varies in what appears to be a sin fx or sawtooth over about 50 Hz…it’s periodicity is 2 Hz. So, on the waterfall, there are multiple zigzag patterns that repeat every 100 Hz. It begins to diminish a bit above 8 8 KHz and below 6.7 KHz. It’s still there on 80M and 30M but much less intense.
Any help appreciated.

Run TQSL
Select File > Display or Modify Prefences...
Select ADIF Modes tab
Add... ADIF Mode = FT8
Resulting TQSL mode: DATA
OK
OK
Exit TQSL
This doesn't work for me...program will not let me Add FT8 ( or ANY mode) into the box ...Cancel is highlighted and i cannot activate the "OK" button. What am I missing?
