I was also calling during our sort common Moon window in 6m band but was not posible to copy him so far due to high noise level in my QTH during my Moon Rise.
Lance, had a copy of me but QSO in 6m NOT compelted.
Here is a part of Lance's e-mail:
Friday, July 18, 2015 - Fifth moon
pass. I confess that I finally crashed :-( I slept 14 hours and missed
the EU moonset and NA moonsets :-( However, during the EU moonrise, I
worked OH6MIK, HA7TM, YU7EF and HA0DU, bringing the total 6m EME worked to
45 so far.
Stations copied but NOT worked were: S51DI,
YO9HP, LZ2WO, 9A8A, OZ1DJJ, S57RR, SV8CS and
G3XDV - SV8CS LF band qso in QRSS-10 (24-03-2014 at 21:20z) DXCC number 9.
Last night I had a very nice QSO in QRSS-10 on 137.710 with Mike, G3XDV.
This is the first ever QSO between Greece and United Kingdom.
This is G3XDV's grabber with my signal.
Thank you Mike for the nice qso and new DXCC in LF band.
I hope to have many more qsos we you and other LF enthusiasts.
Here is my signal captured by Mike, G3XDV in full day light (25/03/2014 at 09:36z).
Mode: Opera 32.

The system also decodes all WSPR-15 transmittions on LF.
In the near future I will add also decodings of OP-8 and OP-32 transmittions.
I am active every evening on QRSS-60 (136.171KHz) and/or Opera-8 & Opera-32.
Last night I capture VO1NA transmitting in Opera-32.

SV3DVO/p, Manolis was for family holydays on KM08xk, 16 Aug 2013, in Monastiraki beach with his 136KHz portable RXing set-up. Manolis had an FT-100 with Mini Whip antenna intalled close to his car and very close to the beach at about 2,50m above ground. SV3DVO/p captured my 136KHz Opera-8 transmittions with his portable set-up at a distance of about 130 KM (KM07js - KM08xk).
SV3DVO's portable 136KHz set-up at KM08xk.
He had also a home made 70cm 2 elements beam for back-up connections with me.
FT-100 dial at 136 KHz.
SV3DVO at the operating position, in the meantime all the others was in the beach swimming.No power there, no inetrnet, no noise.
Saturday 10 Aug, 2013 at 15.00z me and Manolis SV3DVO we had the first ever LF qso on 136 KHz with QRB 95 KM - (KM07>KM08).
The qso made in cross mode at the same QRG because my set-up has not the capability to TX audio, but only CW (QRSS) and Opera.
Manolis, SV3DVO has a completely home made transverter from 10MHz to 136 KHz with about 25 W output on dummy load.
SV3DVO's 136 KHz transverter.
SV3DVO's antenna Marconi "T" type. Consist of 4 X 18m parallel wires with 9,00m vertical wire, attached to loading coil, variometer etc.
TNX Manolis for the help and nice SV, 1st QSO in LF band (136KHz).
During the qso I was TXing in QRSS-3 with YUMA TX136 transmitter running 40w, captured by SV3DVO with spectran and RXing in JT-9 program by K1JT.
My antenna is also Marconi "T" type with 3X28m parallel wires and 40m vertical, installed between 2 HF towers.
Latter on we had nice copy between us also in other modes like normal CW, WSPR, Opera-8 and Opera-32, PSK31, JT9.
My QRSS-3 signal received on SV3DVO receiver.
Last night my signal captured by a new station RX3DHR near MOSCOW 2330 KM.
Best QRB last night GW0EZY at 2488Km.

NEW QRB 2388 Km. I had a new QRB of my 137.540 OP32 signal. G8HUH captured my OP32 transmittion at his QTH loc IO81mg. Also PA3FNY at QRB 2005 Km and 4X1RF at 1398 Km. Stations list:

Now the main loading coil installed outside off the shack but the variometer still inside the shack with the RF A-meter, (spend 4 hours to retune the system HI HI). Next days I will start to build a new loading coil with 33 cm diameter and the variometer intergrated in the main coil.
My LF station is in experimental situation and always is changing. After the installation of loading coil at 10.00z (12.00 local time) with full day light started to TX in QRSS-60 to see if any grabber can copy my signal. Looking at the DF6NM grabber with big surprise I see very clear my transmittion (with day light). Also my signal received by DK7FC (who suggested to me to put the coil outside) grabber.
I hope to see you on LF and of course to make some qso's. 73, Spiros/SV8CS
