40m WSPR with 50mW - best DX spot 6505km

Reports received with 50mW on 40m
Overnight I've been WSPRing with 50mW output on 40m using the Par 10/20/40 end-fed antenna down the garden.  The FT817 set to 500mW directly feeds a Telonic 10dB rotary attenuator set to 10dB attenuation, so no chance of radiation from a coax cable. The antenna is only about 15m long and just 5m average height above the ground. Results (see above) have been very pleasing with best DX report from the USA - K9AN at 6505km.
