This sounds like a question that will always be around. To me the great thing about all of this is the increase in activity on a band that does have some rough times with propagation. I know that for myself, using the JT modes along with my very inefficient antenna and 'low' power, has certainly helped me work many stations on a great band. It also has encouraged me to improve my station for 160.

When we see some of issues that are popping up now, such as remotes being used outside ones entity but claimed as inside, to argue about which mode is worthy or not, is misguided.

In addition, is not like 160 is a crowded band. :^)

If you want an all CW, SSB or Digital, go for it but don't belittle guys that don't have 500 ft. beverages in 6 directions and full size 4 squares for transmitting.

I have 91 countries on topband with an S-7/8 noise level and if it takes JT to get the last 9, so be it, then I'll worry about picking up the others on CW later. We don't hear whining that the all CW guys haven't gotten with the 21st century and don't know how to use modern technology, it the AM/SSB flap all over again. Next thing you know people will start complaining "he worked him in June, not the REAL DXer's season" hi hi hi Rick N6PE======================================================================
