[CQ-Contest] SSB below 1.843

My thought is that the 'dx window' is a mostly out dated artifact from when
many countries had very narrow slivers and only low power on 160m.

And has been noted many times.  Band plans are not law, they are made up for
normal operating conditions and are not meant to handle the large influx of
activity during contests.
