Any sat will make the distance, but you will not be able to 'Ragchew' on an
FM satellite as you are sharing a limited resource.- Only one QSO at a
Best approach for a chat is a linear transponder which will support several

Even so, you will be limited to 20 minutes about 6 times a day.
For a really long chat, 40m is probably best. - Start studying for that
