Yes, very cool. W6OAT and I are among ops who chase CQ Fields, and the 
ones that are all water are a challenge. Both of us worked this station 
for a new field! And for those who won't bother to go read about it, 
WSJT-X standing alone can only be set to will only answer one station 
responding to its own CQ and complete one QSO. The automation to reset 
that process was provided by programming of the computer running WSJT-X.
