On 2019-02-20 at 13:08Z, EB1AO and I completed a 4,936-km QSO between IN52pe and FN43rg, setting a distance record for the U/v repeater on AO-92. It was a -11° pass — Celsius (12°F… brrr). Really, it was a 1° pass — maximum elevation at my end.
Jose's map tells the story, though the time reported is his AOS, not QSO time.
We both recorded the contact. Mine is in Dropbox: eb1ao_AO-92.wav.
Thanks EB1AO. Thanks AMSAT-NA.
UPDATE: Our record was surpassed by F4DXV and VE1VOX, who added 75 km to the distance, in August 2020.
