My first CQ WW 160 CW. My goals were 200 QSOs, 50 countries and at least 1 QSO
with the USA. Unfortunately, I never heard a single US station (yes, terrible
RX here), but I did manage 1 QSO with Canada, which was a high point for me!

I've never experienced a band so densely packed: Usually my 500Hz filter is
adequate, but I was wishing I had 300Hz.

By Sunday evening, it was a challenge to find stations I hadn't already worked
that could also hear me. Despite all the difficulties, it was loads of fun.
