FT8DMC supports VK0AI

Norbert, VK0AI has been very active on 30m using FT8. So far, Norbert is confirming via LoTW and eQSL only, both confirmations coming in very qick. VK0M certainly is an extremely rare entity and everyone would appreciate to have a printed card for the collection.

Therefore we had the idea of sponsoring paper cards for Norbert. In cooperation with UX5UO, the first 2000 cards will soon be delivered to Australia.

In an email Norbert mentioned that „all FT8 contacts have been made at 5W TX power using the HF whip antenna at the station in the com centre.“
