Congratulations on your and Andre's achievement. No time for errors inside
a 30 second window! Enjoyed the video/audio as well.

We keep the QSO with a small window that the AO-7 has provided us. The window was only about 34 sec, this time interval we could not match any commit error. The distance between the two stations is 4085 miles or 7669 Km.
