TopBand: ARRL DX CW 160M Primetime

Over the years I have found it most efficient for DX stations to show up 
on 160 meters either on the top of the hour or on the half-hour between 
0200 and 1100 UTC.  That seems to maximize the number of possible 
stations and/or multipliers that can be worked in the shortest possible 
period of time.  Its a win-win for everyone.

Also everyone should avoid the even frequencies due to foreign QRM 
(especially 1820, 1830, 1840, etc.)  On Aruba, 1830 khz is almost 
useless except for the very strongest stations.

Good luck to everyone this weekend.
