AC4GSINGLE-OP HIGHFew DX on Friday night. More DX on Saturday night, but not many stations all together for me. Many US covering DX stations making it impossible for a QSO. This is typical for the SSB contest(s) on top band. Did not have too much time for this contest. Tha

DV3AMULTI-OPTotal waste of time. Not helped by JA running a CW contest on 160m at the same time. I do not think we will be back for this contest again.
G0CNNSINGLE-OP LOWNot a pre-planned entry, just stumbled across the contest by chance. Good fun on a bent 1/4 vertical.
G4PIQASSISTED HIGHJust a couple of hours operating. Conditions for any DX seemed poor though the usual suspects of K1LZ, K3ZM and VY2WW were loud enough.

IK1PMRSINGLE-OP HIGHItalian stations are limited to 1830-1850 kHz, not an easy life on SSB.
JA8RWUSINGLE-OP LOWThis was my third participation in this TopBand phone contest. The first one two years ago was my debut on 160m SSB from JA. Compared to the previous years, much less activities from Japan. Called CQ maybe for an hour in total with no luck even JA pass wa
JA9FHBSINGLE-OP HIGHI enjoyed the contest.
JE1SPYSINGLE-OP LOWIt was the 3rd CQ 160m contest since the 160m SSB was lifted in Japan. The Japanese SSB band has a width of only 30KHz from 1845 to 1875KHz. Please attention, JA stations can tranmit on 1848kHz low edge. In Europe and the United States, band plans are not
JF2FIUSINGLE-OP HIGHThank you all stations.

K0PGSINGLE-OP HIGHS9+10db noise at this location. Flipped every breaker in the house to no avail. I apologize to those perfectly good signals that I was unbale to copy. Propagation seemed strange also. Better antennas next year.
K1APCSINGLE-OP LOWPortable, battery power
K1LZSINGLE-OP HIGHThank you all for the QSO and specially for the patience! The first night was a nightmare, almost a suffering: If you were one of the many who called me and I couldn't work, I sincerely apologize. The second night was more interesting, some very strong si

K5RXSINGLE-OP HIGHStill have a very rudimentary station following a move last year. The new QTH has less line noise, but still some which has not been fixed. It was down a few dB the first night and there were no stratic crashes whatsoever. Second night's line noise was fu
K5TSSINGLE-OP HIGHfun contest, but we need more hams in it.
K5VGSINGLE-OP HIGHA fantastic rate!
K5ZDSINGLE-OP HIGHHard to work much DX on 160 SSB!
K7AEZSINGLE-OP HIGHThis is my First CQ 160 Meter Contest. It was really great. I used a 81ft End Fed Wire Antenna with # 18 Wire. The wire was only 25ft high. I used a 9:1 Voltage Balun. For this contest I used my Yaesu FT-991A, Solid State Amplifier, and a high power tuner
K8LFASSISTED HIGHI only made a small effort this time around. I gave up right before the contest, trying to get an existing 260 wire to load up on 160M with various configurations. So I operated the contest remote from AC8Y's station. I only operated Friday evening as I w
