You clearly missed the DXMap site over the weekend - there was a VE6
making FT8 QSOs on 2m throughout the western US.  It may take a long
time (like communicating with submerged subs) but that's how and why
it works.

If we're going to do distance scoring like in the 222 and Up, we need
to somehow adjust for mode else everyone will just use the latest mode
from the Nobel laureate.
