It was a very different story for SS SSB this year. Look at all of those
QSOs on 160m:


Although I've never seen a 3830 score report that had QSOs on 160m prior to
this year's SS contests.

Why is there a 160m band category (?) in SS CW/SSB?

In looking over the 3830 band summary for 2005 SS CW, out of 423 submitted
reports, there's only one station reporting making as many as 1 QSO on 160.

Why even bother to carry this band as a usable band in SS?

Say..um.ummmm..that opened wine bottle from the back of the bottom tray of
the refrigerator wasn't all that bad.
