There hasn't been a 160-meter DX Window in the "Considerate 
Operator's Frequency Guide" since before  QST for January 2002 
(haven't check further back than that).

Any change probably traces to here: 
<http://www.arrl.org/announce/reports-0107/160-meter.html> (see topic 
e.) under the Discussion section)

The rules for the ARRL 160-meter contest do still specify a DX 
window; as do the rules for the CQ WW 160-meter DX contest. OTOH, the 
rules for the ARRL International DX Contest do not specify a 
160-meter DX window.
