I did, but my home station wasn't part of it this time. Up from the office and down from Mark's via Skype.

I wonder if anyone else could mount their receive and transmit setups 547.17 miles apart? Or to put it in terms that you are more likely to deal with when assembling your station, 34,668,746.87 inches apart.
