John W1LNX worked Scott W9AFB aeronautical mobile over Colorado recently. Not a bad signal for just over 100 miles away. I am curious about his distance record.
According to John’s description, Scott was operating aboard a Boeing C-135 (or one of the many variations thereof) at about 33,000 feet.
Although Scott’s transceiver in the airplane is limited to 2M and 6M, I think his enviable operating position gives new meaning to the term “air superiority”!
