Hi Pete, 2i0VAX 

My DX record on AO40 from JN70ES Naples Italy was a QSO with 
ZL2AOX Ian Ashley in RF72MV with a distance of 18299.0 Km as you
can see in the following page of QRZ.com


The uplink was in L band and the downlink in S band 

This is why it is very important to pull for the new HEO satellite P3-E ! !
