The rapid rise of the use of FT8 and digital modes which rely on the internet might indicate to some (not me) that 'old time QSOs using RF exclusively and speaking 'live' to 'real people' was a waning part of the Ham radio copy.

Check out the True Blue DXers for proof. I'm happy to be Member # 517.
Happy DXing and enjoying the social aspects of the diverse Ham Radio hobby.
