There hasn't been a 160-meter DX Window in the "Considerate
Operator's Frequency Guide" since before QST for January 2002
(haven't check further back than that).
Any change probably traces to here:
<http://www.arrl.org/announce/reports-0107/160-meter.html> (see topic
e.) under the Discussion section)
The rules for the ARRL 160-meter contest do still specify a DX
window; as do the rules for the CQ WW 160-meter DX contest. OTOH, the
rules for the ARRL International DX Contest do not specify a
160-meter DX window.
