FT8 personal success
Just a moment to post a personal best. In spite of my HOA stealth random wire antenna (65ft), and home made 9:1 unun, I manged during the same afternoon to make contacts in Japan, Germany, and the Canary Islands.
I needed an obscene 50W to get the contact, but it still worked.
Something was right with the signals today. 🙂

Yah... About QSL cards. What do most people do about those? Kinkos? Something else?
