JT6m 6m QSO

This evening was a slightly historic occasion: my first ever QSO using JT6m mode on 50.230MHz. I have used JT65HF on HF but this was the first time with JT6m. Now you may be expecting me to say I worked some exotic DX by MS but this first contact was with M1BXF who was only about 20km away! Listening (more accurately looking) on 50.230MHz has resulted in seeing European DX on 6m under flat band conditions using JT6m. It can be quite entertaining to just leave the RX and PC running to see what DX turns up. You'd be surprised.
