Hi Dick:

I have a very modest (or should I say pathetic) 160-meter capability, but I 
have heard CW top band stations from Japan and the South Pacific.

It seems that the upcoming equinox in September might be a good time to look 
for VKs, ZLs, and the South Pacific.

I would be interested in setting up a 160 sked with anyone in those areas.
