I have seen T6T in Afghanistan (DXCC YA) on the cluster for a while but was either never able to hear him or not at the radio to even try. Well that changed today when I saw T6T spotted on 17m RTTY. I could just barely “print” him on and off for a few hours starting around 9AM ET (1300z) as I worked other stations and did some things around the house. About 2PM ET (1800z) I had a stronger copy on him and started sending my call again. It took a few shots but at 2:18PM ET (1818z) I was able to put T6T in the log!
The below RTTY copy might not look pretty but it looks fantastic to me. I’ve removed noise copied and kept the relevant exchange.

The QSO was made at 1818z and LoTW shows he uploaded his log and our QSL is confirmed at 1955z for a new DXCC confirmed. Thank you Shuravi for working me from your station in Afghanistan with 100 watts (same as me) and a dipole on a bamboo mast.
