It just so happened that FK8GX in New Caledonia showed up calling CQ. I had seen a station from New Caledonia before on FT8 (quite possibly the same station), but was unable to work them. I noticed the signal was -04 which seemed very workable. I called for FK8GX and got a reply quickly! We worked all the way to the 73s and he gave me a signal report of -13. Not too bad for 50watts into a dipole and contacting a station 8,200+ miles away.

Unfortunately, that was all I had time for on the radio last night. I had some other things to do and I went QRT with a new country in the log and knowing that my new meter is working fine.
