Re: [eu-amsat] AO-7 Distance Record.

Hi Gents,
             Well, I'm with Thomas HB9SKA on this one.

For a satellite QSO you need to calculate the distance from the transmitter 
to the receiver ... ie, Station A to the satellite concerned ... and from 
the satellite to station B ... then add them together to get the true 
distance the signal travels.

Like Thomas says ... using the locator to locator measurement only gives the 
"terrestial" distance.
