A2A "ZEUS12, 22. Show you're about 8.5 miles away from us, are you behind us?.....Sierra-Delta-Zulu (SDZ VOR)..." Signal kinda in and out, but strangely very clear and neither pilot had any noticable background noise (helicopter sounds) as if using new type of mic. Prev logged this in use for ZEUS(H64s) training in 2018 near KVUJ. 10/27/2020, 1415h. -AJ

"...H1's, currently Chesterfield, Charlie-Tango-Foxtrot (CHESTERFIELD VOR/DME, CTF), en route to ????bruice???, one hour out..." Oddly excellent, near perfect reception, though CTF is nearly 60 miles distant. The destination part sounded like "tango-bruice", so reception obviously less than perfect. 10/27/2020, 1228h. -AJ

Line of Sight Calculator with Map

This page will give you a plot of your Line-of-Sight distance to aircraft at various altitudes.

The inner most circle are aircraft up to 5,000'. Working out each circle represents aircraft at 10,000', 20,000', 30,000', and 40,000'.

Odds are you're not going to hear aircraft out to the edge of each circle, that would only happen in the "perfect" world. Factors that will reduce you're ability to hear to the edge of the "Line-of-Sight" circle are 1) Your antenna, 2) obstructions (tree, building, mountains...), 3) aircraft orientation (climbing / decending / banking all could block the transmitting antenna from your line of sight), 4) weather conditions between you and the aircraft (signals are attenuated by clouds or rain), 5) signal to noise ratio of your receiver / amps / antenna locaton.

While true line of sight distance will give you an idea of how far out you could receive aircraft, many other factors play into the fact of actually receiving aircraft that far out.
