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?

Olivia modes are commonly referred to as Olivia X / Y (or, alternatively, Olivia Y / X ), where X refers to the number of different audio tones transmitted and Y refers to the bandwidth in hertz over which these signals are spread. Examples of common Olivia modes are 16/500, 32/1000 and 8/250.
