Experimenting on 70cm

As my 10th ever QSO on 70cm, it may be a while until I better this one:

9/7/2015 19:16 D44TS 419 419 HK77ke 4070km 432.201MHz CW

I think this may be a new Region 1 Tropo DX record.

D4C/B and D44TS were 59 at the time on 144MHz and were for hours again.

Amazing DX, the big question is:

How much further South does this duct work?

A video of the 70cm beacon reception is here:
