It is frozen (solid) here in beauteous Ohio so I checked the bands at 1100 
PM local before turning in and found 160 to be good shape. I wrked a total 
of 34 stations (list of prefixes below) over the period of 0419Z to 0646 Z. 
I wrked the 6W @0419  then cruised up and down the band. I called CQ near 
the end of my time and worked a fair number of EU plus KH6, 8P and EU . Just 
one of the best nights in a long while on 160!!! Many of the EU guys sounded 
like locals and probably could have been copied on a coat hanger.

Worked: 6W,OZ, 9A, CO, CT, UA, DL, G, PA, 8P, I, GM, KH6, OM, VE6, HA, OH,
