Before I changed my callsign, I had tried several times to work Indonesia. I do not often hear them or decode them on a digital mode. When I did, I didn't get a reply. While just making a general CQ call on 20m FT8, I got a reply from YB8RW. I worked the QSO all the way through and logged it. I had not even realized it was Indonesia until later when I looked at my recent contacts on QRZ.com. How about that? I chased Indonesia a few times, and this time they replied to my CQ!
