Hard getting more than 7 bands in an FT8 Session

Propagation has been different the last few days, and each day I have been able to work more bands than usual.

Typically I am getting QSOs on 160, 80, 40, 30, and 20 meters. The last three I’ve made FT8 QSOs on 17 meters, and today made a handful of SA QSOs on 15 meters which gives me a high band per session count of seven.

Using WSJT-X/SmartSDR for Windows via SmartLink (mostly) to my home Flex-6700 #1 using ZeroFive flagpole vertical antenna. For some QSOs on the shorter bands today I used WSJT-X/SmartSDR for Windows via LAN to my Flex-6600 to a Cushcraft vertical but found no difference in what bands I could see activity on.
