2006 CQ160 Meter

Summary: Total: QSOs = 100 State/Prov = 35 Countries = 0 Total Score = 8,050

Very quiet low QRN conditions here. Got my three hours in during the early evening hours, so all QSO’s are W or VE, no DX worked. Heard several DX, but they could not hear my tin whistle over the pile-ups.

It will be interesting to see the logs turned in for this one. This seemed to be the best conditions I have heard on 160 for low noise.

I wasn’t making any headway on 20 meters, so I ditched the high bands for a try at a run on 40 meters. That worked well as long as it lasted, but I needed to ditch my run in favor of a couple of household errands and a turn at burning various meats over an open flame, accompanied by a small glass of fermented hops-laden adult beverage. (Sam Adams Black Lager- very good stuff.)
