I had a contact yesterday where I went outside my macros with just simple comment on the other op's rig working well. Lo and behold, he replied in kind. Long story short - we chatted for over an hour! One of the nicest QSOs I've ever had.
Definitely can't do that with FT8! :-) That mode has a place, sure, but I still prefer PSK-31 as you CAN go conversational if you like. I do that about 50% of the time. Rarely does it turn into a lengthy chat, but I frequently learn interesting tidbits about the other op. It's also how we've gotten many new members to the 070 club!
