Thanks to Robert (N7QT) in the great State of Washington, I completed the ARRL 17m Digital Worked All States Award this afternoon from California. Robert and I made an FT8 contact on 17m with ease. 17m WA contacts had proven difficult in the past for me. There seems to be a narrow window that my signal would propagate into WA on 17m. I believe this has to do with the orientation of my antenna and take angles. Robert's excellent station made all the different in the contact.
