First FT-8 and WSPR contacts

After the November Sweepstakes contest ended,   NQ9L decided to get FT8 and WSPR going on the shack computer.     With rigblaster and the Icom Hf rig, we logged a few contacts and also tested the antenna on WSPR.    Amazing stuff. Despite 20M being totally dead long past local sunset,  our digital 3 watt signal  was heard across North America and Africa !
