This is an amazing feat. Given the Hepburn charts, it appears that given a bit more inversion a bit further north that a W4 from southern FL to D4 QSO would be possible.

And, it was a person-to-person QSO --
not a computer-to-computer 'contact'.

Imagine the thrill at each end!!

It was on 144.174, the 2M FT8 "channel", so it may not have started out as human-to-human...

I saw when it was spotted this morning and made reference to it on the VHF-Chat Slack channel.  He also worked, or at least spotted, PJ2BR, which is considerably farther at almost 4800 KM.  Both original spots were in FT8.
