It would be more significant if the antenna was described.  I suspect 
if one used a 1000-foot dish it would be quite easy to do!  The 
article mentions his working Gary in Ohio.  That most likely is KB8RQ 
which runs a very large array of 2m yagis (I believe 32 of 
them).  That helps a lot!

I have over 115 eme contacts on 2m running only 125w to four 
yagis.  So if this ham is running a single yagi and 25w that IS a big 
achievement.  But no mention of what antenna system is being used?
