[RTTY] 160 Meter RTTY

I operate nightly on 160 meters around 1810 kc +/- during the winter time 
using RTTY, MFSK16 and PSK31/63. Unfortunately though it's a nightly battle 
with intentional QRM from a handfull of private playground/gated community 
mentality sociopathic CW ops who want nothing below 1843 kc but CW. This 
intentional interference has succeded in running most digital ops off of the 
band. 160 is no longer a gentlemans band.
