Hahahaha…That kind of thing has been known to happen.
However, I can confirm the possibility of a 100+ mile, direct line of site.communication (no skip), with unique conditions. There is a certain saddle on one of the mtn roads in the hills above Boise, Id, that due to unique conditions, has a perfect, narrow line of sight through the topography, and can reach areas here in the Magic Valley. 115 mi as a crow fly’s.
We have done it a handful of times. Twice the mtn radio has been a kid that lived there, with a standard cobra 148 gtl, and a steel whip antenna, and we had base stations here.
Doesn’t happen often, but it can.
