RI1ANO - South Shetlands - new one

I caught an ATNO last night. RI1ANO - Locator  GC07mt 

Mode: JT65
Band: 40m
Distance: 13700km
Bearing: 208deg

JTDX
He was a good signal R-13 on my dipole @ 10m. I checked the path with the new VOACAP online tool. The contact took place 90min after my sunset - once both our D-layers are below the horizon.
I made an "educated" guess to convert JT65 parameters to cw in voacap!
