Sure a 1.99 MHz QSO would count for 160.  I have often wondered what the 
propagation would be like up there.  I once did a quick QSY with some DX
station (I forget who it was) to try it - but more experimentation would 
be needed.

I would be happy to retune my antenna for that frequency and run some tests.
