With my "limited" station (FT530 + Arrow) I was impressed when I could make a contact from DL55 to FN43 which is about 2400 miles; all that surprise was erased when, for a very limited time (about 20 seconds), I could make a contact to BP40 which is around 3100 miles and yes indeed is a wonderful hobby...
