The authors report straight-line single-channel 40 Gbit/s RZ data transmission over 240 km of standard fibre with periodic dispersion compensation. To the authors' knowledge, this is the longest transmission distance reported in a straight-line transmission experiment, at 40 Gbit/s without any precoding. The back-to-back receiver sensitivity of the system was 18.9 dBm for a BER of 10-9 . Transmitting data over 240 km of fibre induced a sensitivity penalty of 0.4 dB for a BER of 10-9
