This evening at 1650z I had a first QSO, in a long time, on 10m JT9-1 digital weak signal mode with 2W RF following my CQ call on 28.078MHz USB dial. The 2-way QSO was with N8HTG at 5937km.
My calls were also received by several other USA stations such as WO4R, KQ8M and WC0Y according to the PSKreporter website.
JT9-1 is about 2dB less sensitive than WSPR, but it allows 2-way contacts to be made. Using WSJTX software the QSO was straightforward.
Incidentally, K9AN was still copying my 2W 10m WSPR at 1724z which is late in the evening.
