I use 'directed' FT8 CQs quite often with mixed results....
I need Delaware on 15M for WAS and a CQ DE WA3AFS FN32 does not work very well as the DE is misunderstood a bit of the time and the result is that my log is filling rapidly with a lot of PY qsos (which I do not mind). CQ DEL WA3AFS FN32 ends up with the same result!
I also need Vermont on 30M and even though I can just about see Vermont from my QTH I seem to collect a lot of EU qsos when CQ VT WA3AFS FN32.
