I spend a lot time on 6 and 10 meter FT8. I use QRZ logging I log all contacts within 1 or 2 min. Running a Icom 7610 on 80 thru 6 meters. Antennas are a cobweb at about 20 feet and/or a DX Commander/N6OA vetrical on 30/40 meters and an off center fed dipole, most of which is 5 feet above the ground, on 80. FT-8 and SSB. I am on Yaesu Fusion listing to America Rag Chew room or America link room.I also listen to DMR TAC-3112. The digital equipmnet is Yaesue FT-400, FT-2 and FT-70, In the corner somewhere is an FT-100 and an HRI-200 working thru the local UHF repeater which makes it a wide area WIRES-X NODE. Seems to get real busy at times.

Thanks for your QSL. Someday I'm going to get one of those awards like WAS, WAC, etc. I've pretty much worked everything but the folks won't confirm.
