JS8Call, the FT8-like data mode that supports free text messages has finally moved out of Beta and gone to a full release. Version 1.0.0 can now be downloaded from where you can also find FAQ, helpful user guides and YouTube videos. Although fairly slow at 10-20 WPM the mode works at s/n levels down to -24dB, so even at the current sunspot minimum should allow CW-style QSOs to be made worldwide. The current JS8Call Guide is here.
