Figured it was going to be easy setting up for this since we just had the CW
Sprint days before.  Went outside and hooked up the matching network back onto
shunt arm for 160 meters about 20 minutes before start (had been removed
earlier this summer).  Seemed to check out fine.  So start operating NS and
near the end switched to 160, stations sound good.  Went to call someone and
when it switched back to receive all of signals dropped to near S0 and now SWR
is near infinite.  After several minutes of frustration later, it was
determined to be a bad coax jumper in shack going to 160 feed line.  Hence the
0 x 0 for 160 meters and no qsos for the last 4 minutes.  Ouch!
