20m FT8 Tonight

While i think FT8 and other digital modes are like watching paint dry, they do achieve one big thing, they allow for tiny stations like mine to work some DX. I am running about 25w into a dipole that is 8m AGL. For all intents and purposes I am nothing more than a portable station, the antenna is the sotabeams linked dipole i use portable and its hanging off the same squid pole I use. But I am working DX and its keeping things fun while I layout a schematic for a future project.
