The best way to make FT8 contacts with Japan on 160m

My idea is to use the RIT with a value of 68000 Hz (1840 + 68 = 1908). Japan can transmit between 1807.5 and 1812.5 kHz. With the RIT you use only one panadapter / slice.

Another ideas?

I do the same for ZL's on 60 meters but I use 2 slices.

Slice A is parked on 5357 with zero RIT and Slice B is set to 5357 with RIT set to 4000.

This allows me to monitor both "normal" activity (US and most DX) on Slice A as well as ZL's on 5362 with Slice B.

Often ZL4OL can be found on 5362 and he monitors 5357 from time to time. Then I can call him on 5357 and he replies on 5362 if he hears me.

Have a Flexcellent day!

My goal this winter is to get Alaska and Hawaii which will give me work those dates and 160. I've heard both hope that I hear them again!
