K3/100 - KPA500 and Inverted L with 7 elevated radials Only operated off/on on Saturday night/Sunday morning. I didn't think conditions were all that good. Only EU station heard was ES5RW around his sunrise. Also heard PP5JR with a good signal. Neither could hear me or anyone else calling them. Only DX I worked were PJ4G, PJ4DX, KV4FZ, KP4KE, C6ANM, VP2MKG, ZF2AM, ZF9DX, V31RU, XE1RCS and TO3Z. Only multipliers worked out were VE5, VE6, VE7, NM and WA. Sometimes I'm baffled by this band. I have a decent antenna and run 600 watts but still have lots of loud stations just CQ in my face when I call them. There seem to be lots of alligators on 160 SSB. I recently improved my antenna by getting the vertical section of it to about 65 feet. I also raised the elevated radials some as well. Still not sure if my antenna is still crummy of it was just bad conditions. Maybe I should just stick to CW where it's less frustrating. Jeff KU8E
