I tuned over to the 6m FT8 frequency and listened for signals. I heard some weak signals. WSJT-X decoded XE3N calling CQ from grid EL60 in Mexico. I answered his call and we were able to work the QSO and I logged it. The conditions were not very strong and I only decoded a few other stations that were all fairly close. I tried working one more, but I lost conditions and couldn't finish the QSO. Since it was late, I went QRT after working just that 1 station.
I have previously only worked stateside and Canada on 6m. I was glad to get a new county in the log on that band. Geographically though, XE3N in Mexico was closer to my QTH than the contacts I made in California recently.
