Stick a fork in me I'm done.  Very little motivation for this one and it used 
to be one of my favorites all year.  First night the QRN was tremendous.
10 to 20 over on crashes.  Second night severe lack of signals here in
Montana.  Gave in both nights early about 1 in the morning.  I agree with
Tree the DX window is not large enough.  The narrow window makes it
extremely hard for stations in the west to hear the weak stuff through all
the QRM.  A station at 1835.1 essentially takes out 2/3 of the window
making it hard to even hear a strong station like TI1C.  

Probably my last CQ 160 SSB.
