Several years ago, my father and I were testing the range of two K40 equipped CB's in the Houston metroplex. I was sitting at the intersection of FM 762 and Highway 59. My father was positioned at Bisonnet and Highway 59. We heard one another. Yes, it was a bit faint, but we still communicated. That is the longest transmission I've experienced in my life with the exception of running skip. The estimated distance was around 16 miles. But, that is rare.
