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

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
