Worked Burkina Faso - XT2BR
Ok, I'm terrible at geography. But I'm learning! Ham radio has forced me to at least look at maps and become familiar with the names of countries and I feel like I've never heard of. Burkina Faso is one such country.
I was working FT8 on 20m and saw XT2BR from this unfamiliar country show up. I was happy to work the station getting only a -19 signal report from him and then take a look to see where it was.
Burkina Faso is a landlocked country in West Africa. It covers an area of around 105,900 square miles and is surrounded by six countries: Mali to the north; Niger to the east; Benin to the southeast; Togo and Ghana to the south; and Ivory Coast to the southwest.
