I've never seen such a large number of DX stations as a percent of the total 
band population on 160.  Ever.  Thought I'd play around with a QRP entry 
again, as I didn't have much time to operate.  This was a blast!  No packet 
pileups, no wall-to-wall CQing, (almost) no frequency fights.  Makes me want 
to operate the next one with no computer and a straight key.  
(Hello...Reality check....)

Anyhow, I knew it was going to be a fun evening when DF0KW came back to my 
five watts on the first call.  A close second in the "highlights" column was 
calling RA2FBC (several times) as he was fading, then hearing NL7Z start 
CQing on the same frequency, and having my first top-band QRP KL7 QSO.

Does it get any better than this?

Bottom line:  121 Q's, 378 points in about 3 hours.  

Thanks for having ears, guys!  73, Jim N9JF
