After successfully conecting a loaned YAESU FT-817 to a  Free FT8  Android app Named FT8CN. I spent an evening watching contacts communicating across the globe and while I found frequencies just above and below the freeband, I couldn't find any that I could use my CT callsign on.
So does anyone use FT8 on the freeband frequencies and if so what are thay please as I would love to reply or even call DX on FT8 before I sit my Foundation Exam. 

Thanks for taking the time to read this post.

Have a look at PSK reporter for JS8. Mostly Europe but also 2,173,43 Divs. Right now 44 div.
JS8 accepts 11m callsigns.
JS8 software download at http://files.js8call.com/latest.html
Good luck

I'll have a go as soon as I return from work Wednesday Morning and then post the outcomes.

I've heard lots of what sounds like data streams on the freeband frequencies but haven't been able to pin down what modes they are.

Thanks for the help and time, it's really appreciated

Sometimes PSK31, RTTY and others on 27500
