Yes, I have. I made a qso with a station in California. At the time, it didn't dawn on me that with the free message, I could have sent my 10-10 number along with my 73. The band was not doing very well so only made the one qso. Next time, I guess.
The only reason some people should get close to a microphone is to lean forward and say, "Thank you, your total is $5.82. Please, drive around to the window."

I have about 20 10-10 QSO's using FT8. Using the custom / free text field I send my 10-10 number to my contact after the complete exchange.
