My activity on 6m band starts to 1997 when Hellenic Radiocomunications Ministry has
give to selected radioamateurs groups the permission to use the band.
Since then Im QRV on band almost daily for long time specially weekends.
My special thanks to SV1EN (Nikos) for his help and advises.
The band untill today is shared with Hellenic Army and the modes that
allowed is CW,SSB, RTTY and FM only in special emergency cases.

The SV5SIX beacon trensmiter it's installed in Jan 28 2000 at DRAA Club Station after
long time of preparing and discussions with Hams all over the world.
