Yep, communicated direct (red lines) well over 300 miles (circle is 357 
miles radius) and lit up digipeaters across a 700 mile range.  All of 
those green lines at the edges are unnecessary digipeater hops because 
it's quite likely that the red lines were hitting numerous IGates at the 
same time the digipeaters received it.

PS.  The actual balloon track is that dark diagonal line just above left 
of center.
