Looking at the nearest 50 stations, you get to over 90 miles for the 50th, so perhaps that is not unreasonable out in the flatlands.  Does that sound valid?

However, there are still lots of misguided folks out there...Here in NE Illinois, Whenever I watch my display, it's not unusual to see beacons from over 400 miles away fixed and mobile stations. Those may have unreasonable paths, but I don't usually investigate to see how far I hear direct stuff.  I have seen some extreemly far things on the display at times...as in over a thousand mi.  One "9" I see regularly shows as over 2k mi..  Gott'a  see if I can  call him one of these days...
