R: longest land distance on AO-40



Dave,

On OSCAR-13 i got QSO with KH6 Hawaiian Island  of Mauii

First time was with satellite west of me and second time was with satellite
est of me

The elevation for both stations was fraction of a degrees above the free
horizon on the see.

I cannot recall the call letter of KH6?? in this moment.

On AO40 the longest  was ZL1AOX  Jan in  New Zeeland

On OSCAR-10  ZL was never in range with Italy for any best argument
of perigee.

73" de i8CVS Domenico
