1923 and 1924 marked the zenith of long distance communication records. Starting with the first ever contact between ZL & VK in 1923 it went on in 1924 with first ever QSO's & new distance records for connections between ZL-LU, ZL-W6 and only days later ZL-W1. The culmination was on the 18th of October 1924 when between 0615 to 0730 UTC on 90 meters (in those days) the first Trans-World contact took place between Frank Bell (a sheep farmer) Z4AA (ZL4AA) in Shag Valley, NZ and Cecil Goyder (an 18 years old student) at Mill Hill School in London using the callsign G2SZ.
26. Apr 1923, 1st ZL-VK trans-Tasman contact, 4AA
