Thank you for the CW qso. I was missing this country. Thanks also for the quick response to my qsl card. This is ham spirit. Stay healthy and see you on a band soon. 73
Please call only for africa sometime, it’s very hard the walls EU, JA or W.
Many thanks, for your effort.

I wish good luck and good dx to mr. Take. I wonder if there are plans for an organized dxpedition to Minami Torishima? 73
Thank you TAKE for providing MInami Torishima QSO opportunities. You are a great CW operator, and next-day LOTW confirmation is fantastic! Many in our Utah DX Association were able to make contact in April 2023 for ATNO.

Really need a big JA DXpedition to here and JD/O to meet the demand that is there, these single guys who only do part time operations are good but it can be very hard to work them from far away places like NW EU we never get a chance,
what is the email address of Take JG8NQJ?
There was some FT8 activity reported on 5 and 6 November from JG8NQJ/JD1 … was that Slim-Take or really him, finally trying to give out some most needed digital contacts?
Of course there was an unbreakable JA wall, but if it really was him, then there is hope that one day it can be done! Again the question to any Japanese reader here to provide more insight information.
Domo arigato in advance.

Copied Take several times, not very loud, but unfortunately his goal seems to be working JA?
“MAYBE” one of our Japanese readers has any kind of contact to Take and might ask him about some digital activity from Minami next time.
I remember ONE activity from him on 17m a couple of years ago, while RTTY was the common digital mode. And since then, nada! (Of course I did not work him this day ☹)
I don’t know if he could be “convinced”, that FT8 operation would be a cure to this need, but you never know.
At least, while I had to realize that there will be no more new real RTTY entities for me, I was happy and lucky to work VK0MQ for a new one.
But that brings me to another subject, the ability to use FT8 the right way. WHY do many operators still stick to regular FT8 operation, while they have a good signal and could work much more station in Fox/Hound?
Start regular, then announce the F/H frequency, and someone will spot you and you have your pile-up going on …
