Topband: Totally Deaf

This evening I was declared on the DX cluster by a leading Top Band DX'er in the US to be "TOTALLY  D E A F."  Another in Europe complained that I was just CQ'ing.  I supposed they meant I was just cluttering up the band (even though I had managed to make seven contacts through the 20 over S9 QRN over about a 40 minute period), so I gave it up and signed off.  
  I suppose I should just quit trying to work through the ever strong Equatorial noise on 160M and work the easy bands instead.  It's a lot less strain on my ears, and I don't have to stay up late to do it.
