My personal best on an LEO is Norway to Japan - (FO-20 in 1997).

Depending whether you classsify AO-7 as a LEO bird - (with an orbital height
of 1400Km) - the current record there
is 7500 - 7700Km, by several stations.

You may have been only interested in FM satellites, to9 which I have no

Hope that helps somewhat.
