VU2GMN works N1JFQ on AO-40

Congratulations Gopal  VU2GMN for having worked N1JFQ on AO-40.
A great achievement from VU

If you can calculate the distance between your grid locations it will be
fine as you must be aware that the max distance worked thro'  AO-40 is appx
18,500 kms.
So hope you will beat that record.
Awaiting your reply.
Best 73

Hi Friends,

I managed to make my first AO-40 contact to the US this morning - N1JFQ -

The window was just 20 minutes before the sat dipped below the horizon
