How to "participate" in the CQ 160m CW contest:
1) Use rotatable 40m dipole as your 160m antenna
2) Press tune button on transceiver's built-in antenna tuner
3) Voila! You're on 160m
4) QSY 2 kHz, repeat step 2
Results of using this powerful combination in low power category:
85Q x 5C x 31S = 7,164
Seriously, thanks to those who did an incredible job of digging
my signal out of the noise.
My score may be puny, but I'm pretty sure I beat noted contester Joe Walsh.

1006 Q, 23 C, 57 S ==> 186,400
Station: TS-940S, SB-1000 (~700w), 1/4 wave sloper from 70' tower.
Time: ~25 hrs.
-my first 160 contest...the rate was great for the first four hours.
Once I hit the 600 qso level at around 2 am, the rate dropped like a brick
and I began reading old issues of CQ and NCJ...by the end of the contest
had gone through about 5 years of each.
-Now I know what Beverages are for...there was plenty of dx on the band
(and conditions weren't too bad into IL the second night), but I couldn't
copy much on the sloper...best rx antenna was a 80m dipole. Worked 98.5%
NA, and loads of W8, W9, W6 and PA/MD.
-the "DX Window" is useless except for providing a convenient place for
the DX stations to congregate. I thought the idea was for dx stations to
announce listening frequencies outside of the window? If this actually
happened, I think stations on both ends of the pileups would be happier
and would make more contacts. Did it ever work this way? It would definitely
make things easier for the midwest!
73 and thanks for all the Q's!

Hi. We had a nice quiet band here, and it was nice to be able to work
a few Carribean stations for a change. Unfortunately, my BORROWED IC2KL
amplifier went up in smoke in the middle of the first night, and it
was difficult to work too much new after that.
VE4VV - 255q 49m = 60k
IC740, toasty IC2KL, 60' vertical.
