Spotted in China on FT8

I was very pleased to see my FT-8 signal on 30m spotted in China the other day. I could not see them on the waterfall but none the less it was a nice surprise to see.

    Hello Mike, just wondering if you’ve ever had FT8 contacts or spots from anywhere in the Philippines. I’m in PK04 close to Manila. From here, I see and have made contacts with VE7 land, but nothing further east of that.

    Good evening, as of yet no spots or contacts in the Philippines but I did make 3 contacts in Japan on FT8 so close but not close enough.
