    That would be impressive via groundwave.
    I think we can both agree it was via skywave.

    Ground waves are scary, they are in the ground and may harm rabbits.

    Yes sky waves, right place at the right time and is getting more and more common.

    Seriously I had a qso with a friend out in Washington a few months ago, he was out there to do experiments on a new radio system. In his side he used one of them new 705 radios and here I used a qrp system using a raspberry pi transmitter with a five watt amp and a rtl-sdr receiver with a random piece of wire, this was a 10 minute conversation before I had some clown trying to get into the conversation on his side.

    People get all caught up in what needs to be done but it doesn’t take a lot to communicate.

    I like doing more with less! But it does take a lot to communicate at distance consistently.
