2376 Miles = 3824 km   = 2  x  1912 km

In contrast to Sporadic-E reception via only 1500 km, there are weaker
signals at 2000 km.
But, because of the shallower angle, they are longer and more stable.
So, from my point of view, there is a higher statistical probability of
observed double hops via 4000 km than via 3000 km.
Seen in this way, the approx. 3800 km are within the reasonable
expectation range for double skips.
