Since the height above ground varies due to the elliptical nature of
orbits the max range also varies. Where the two stations are located
relative to the apogee of the orbit can also come into play. If you
are on the wrong side of the earth when the satellite is at its apogee
that could be a problem.
Here is my best shot at the range of max distances for AO-07 - compare
them to numbers you get from other folks and let me know what you
find. My numbers could be and are probably wrong.
