- Station A in North America is calling CQ on 1827.0 and is heard by 
Station B in Europe via a webSDR located 50 km away from Station A in 
North America.

- Station B in Europe is calling Station A - who is listening via a 
webSDR in Europe located 50 km away from Station B

- Both stations exchange 599+ reports and greetings for a fine QSO.

Wow, their signal made it 50 km via the airwaves at both ends and was 
then "carried" across the world via the Internet.

What a wonderful Top Band QSO, carried out "the modern way", 
embracing new technology.
