GDX on 6m

During the day a few more G stations have been spotted on 6m WSPR as well as the great DX to CN8 and 4X.

As well as lots of spots from G4IPZ I have been spotted by G4KPX, G0LRD (all locals) and earlier this afternoon by G1IDZ in IO82tc at a distance of 183km. G1IDZ is real GDX at a great range. I would expect this station also had a vertical antenna?

Hi Roger,
I'm using a horizontal dipole so I expect the cross-polarisation accounts for the the weak signals (-16dB SNR) between us. From his signal strength (+9) I'm guessing that G4IKZ has matching polarisation to me.

Pretty sure Nick (G4IKZ) has a 6m horizontal Moxon, David.
