Worked Grenada Football World Cup 2018 Special Call - J32FIFA

I had a good time yesterday on the air.  It was one of those days that I ended up having QSOs on every radio that I own.  While I was working some 20m FT8, I saw a spot on the DX cluster showing Grenada.  I had never worked Grenada before so I finished my FT8 QSO, and tuned over to the extra class phone portion of the band.  I had some pretty heavy QRM, but I was able to copy J32FIFA pretty well.  59 in fact.  I turned on my amplifier and I listened for a few minutes.  I heard him call "J32FIFA QRZ listening up 2", I set the split frequency, and I called.  After only 2 calls, he returned and gave me a 59 report as well.  I'm always glad to work a new country and special event stations!
