    Congrats for the contact!

    Just a thought, the COMPUTERS did not set up the radio and the antennas or did they? When somebody use tools like antenna analyzers to set up antennas or any other tool like pliers or screwdrivers, should we tell thanks to that tools?

    Make the contact happens requires some knowledge and a lot of effort, just like any other mode in radio bands.

    Again, congrats foe the contact!

    PS: Sorry for any grammar error in my english.

    Don't forget the antennas and power supplies.

    Roger that.

    Reminds me of the old Yellow Pages telephone directory ad slogan:

    "Let your fingers do the walking!"

    With FT-8 it could be:

    "Let your computers do the talking!"

    Just for all the smartasses here.If you beat that record with your last century modes like SSB or even CW, I'll be quiet. But you can't! You simply don't understand the word evolution. You just stay at AM please? So I don't have to make contact with Neanderthals like you.

    Look... I’m really technically inclined, but those robo-QSOs are pretty boring. It’s like telling people you’re really into making meals from scratch, but upon further examination, they are microwaved. If you’re just gonna have a computer do all the work, why do anything at all? That’s not fun. At that point it just becomes ridiculous record-chasing. This is one of those situations where “there is no correct answer.”

    Right.... let's congratulate the computers... because the computers took the time to build that station, put up the antenna & get on the air.......

    This mode superiority attitude is so old.

    Ignore the trolls OP. Congrats!
