R: longest land distance on AO-40



Hi Ian ZL1AOX,

Yes ! my locator is JN70ES and i like to contact you again from your actual
RF72MV locator to get a 18,285 Km.

I was looking several time for ZL when full in range for me but
unfortunally no body was active except you at the very beginning of AO40
activity and you are my first and only one satellite QSO with New Zeeland.

I would like to have a new skedule at any time is convenient for you.

Please let me know when you are available on AO40

TNX !

73" de i8CVS Domenico
