Turned on the FT-1900 and heard some rapid-fire QSOs on the 2m calling frequency. W9AFB was calling Air Mobile from a C-135 at 33,000 ft over southern Colorado.

He certainly had a heck of a pileup! I only got a few minutes on camera when I threw my call into the mix.

Line of sight for us was about 130mi: 10w out on both sides. I probably could've QRP'd to 5w or maybe even 2.5w.

Thanks for the quick QSO, Scott. Fly safe.
