  ing the dB values received by the SuperHounds.
* The SuperHound stations transmit normal FT8 signals  anywhere  from 200 Hz
  and up; their frequencies are not shifted down after being called.
* A  SuperFox station  can send  text  messages  of  up to 26 characters  in
  length, for example to announce QSY.
* A  digital signature  embedded in the SuperFox message will enable the re-
  ceiving software  to confirm  that the signal  originates from the genuine

  of  WSJT-X  will  be  mandatory  (candidate  release  WSJT-X 2.7.0-rc5  is
  upcoming, bookmark https://wsjt.sourceforge.io./wsjtx.html).
