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"!
