A total gas for me! This is my first CQ 160 with a decent rx ant (SAL 30) and tx ant (shunt-fed tower with two elevated radials). For the most part, I could hear and be heard. I'm very much a rookie, and stayed below 1840, while apparently lots and lots of goodies are much higher. I need to talk with my local gurus, K5NA and N5AW and learn how to operate top-band contests. Am still learning low to use my new (to me) K3 but it sounded great on receive. The crowding of signals is really something at times! Had quite a few EU stations call me on my TX freq. Not loud, for the most part, but really a thrill to dig out here in Texas. The EF8 station sounded like a true local! Wow. This was a blast and I feel like a teenager this morning! Thanks to all.
