New best DX on 6m

There were some nice conditions on 6m yesterday evening and while tuning around I heard SV9GPV on Crete working a long string of stations. I joined in the throng but in half an hour of calling I didn’t manage to get through the pileup. In the end he QSYd to 4m so I tuned further up the band and heard SV9CVY, Mike calling CQ. I called him and was very pleased to get through on my third shout, Mike is also on Crete and at a distance of 2652 km (1648 miles) he’s by far my best DX on 6m using my homebrew half wave dipole in the loft.
