I worked mike on his handheld the other day too, though at the time he was on the roof of his apartment, which is further south from the beach where he normally DXs from.

Mike is great guy, I frequently speak to him over the summer months and he's a keen DXer. I am hoping to meet him when I visit the island this year, but I dont know if the missus will let me do any DXing whilst I am there mind! haha

Mike also has a great Youtube channel, search for his callsign on there.

Great contact though emoticon
