Real 6m DX at last

Earlier this week 6m bucked up a bit allowing W5OZI in EM00 square to be heard hear at around 8000kms! Also heard were N3DB, 4X4DK and 4Z5LA. This was a few days ago now and I've not heard any further "super" DX since when I have listened. It is amazing what can be heard on just a small vertical antenna fed to the FT817 via about 40 feet of RG58 coax!

Also this week I received the QSL card from K1TOL for our 6m transatlantic QSO last summer - my best ever 6m QSO with just 2.5w ERP.
