For a small club satellite presentation I will be mentioning the
benefits of HEO over LEO and the range advantage.
Can anyone tell me the distance record set when AO-40 was alive?
I'm sure you will get lots of answers. But my own personal favourite
response to a CQ call on AO-40 from London UK was a Japanese station located at
one of the south pole research stations.
London to Perth Australia on AO-13 is also in my log, but it was impossible
to get from here in the UK to ZL.
My local club also took equipment to ZC4 in Cyprus and C56 (Gambia) making
about 200 QSOs from each location. DX-Peditioning was popular on the HEO
Good luck with the talk
