8,85 km on 10 GHz

I've made it! Today 2019-04-13 at 11:20Z my bare HB-100 WFM TX was received with a bare LNB at 8.85 km (5.50 miles) over a pure line-of-sight path. Then I added the parabolic dish on the RX side and the signal became very, very strong. BTW, nobody was aiming the TX side, so the signal could have improved a bit.

The current world record is 204 km (HB-100+dish to LNB+dish) and I am longing for it. :)
