Worked Taiwan and Japan on SSB Phone - BX5AA, JA1XEC
I have been able to work Taiwan only 2 times before and both were on FT8. Oddly enough, one of the stations I had worked before on FT8, BX5AA (Jimmy), was booming into GA on 20m SSB phone. I turned my yagi, powered up the amplifier, and gave Jimmy a call. He answered and we had a nice contact with good signal reports exchanged! That was my first contact with Taiwan via SSB phone! I was shaking like a leaf with nerves and excitement! 8,000+ miles!
A few minutes later, I also worked JA1XEC in Japan on SSB phone! I think his antenna did all the work, but conditions with Asia were great during "grey line"!
