This afternoon I worked G3PTQ in Bottisham, 6kms away with the 50mW Sixbox AM transceiver. Report was RS41 (weak, but 80% readable). Then Terry mentioned he was using a low horizontal dipole, so signals could easily have been some 10-20dB (2-3 S points) stronger had he had a vertical antenna. This little transceiver is definitely proving useful for local 6m contacts.
