I remember some cynics even on this list saying that, on 160 meters, 100 watts
could practically be considered QRP.

Well, what a lucky night I had on 3/1/95 (Z), after having just built up a 160
meter transmitter filter for my R2 / CW TX setup:

0407 N0KSV, Nebraska 559
0426 AA0RS, Colorado 599!
0445 K2QOB New York 449 but very patient and curious
0504 N6TR/7 Oregon 559 called me after K2QOB

This with my horizontal loop, 350 feet around, 30 ft high, both feeders fed
from hot end of tuner so it's kind of a random wire on that band.

Anybody else for some 160 meter attempts? Hurry, before spring and summer QRN!
