Worked Gabon on 10m - TR8CA
I have been messing around with FT4 some lately. I haven't gotten much into it since it caused some logging/QSL headaches. However I saw someone spot TR8CA in Gabon on 10m FT4. I thought a few things...first I thought this was probably spotted on the wrong band on accident. Then I though perhaps it was correct but the spotter was just really close. In any case, I moved over to 10m FT4 and pointed the yagi in the direction of Gabon. Sure enough, I began decoding TR8CA. So I gave a few calls and was very surprised to get a response! Gabon was not a new country for me, but it was a really awesome contact to have made at 6,300+ miles away on 10m band!
