I'm not sure if this contact is a record distance, but I will claim it until I'm knocked off my pedestal. At about 1915Z I worked Mika-OH8MBN in KP24, I'm in CN87 (running 8W John). This works out to 7229Km or 4493 miles. Mika and I have been trying to connect for several days, the window is really really short. QSO was on SSB with KC8ZFN as a witness. Has anyone else "stretched" the footprint.
