Yes, the FT5XO operation was well-run, with great operators and at least good 
antennas. However, I will point out that no 160 meter QSO's were made with the 
southcentral and southwestern USA - the strip through Texas, New Mexico and 
Arizona. I could be mistaken on this, but I don't even think any 80 meter QSO's 
were made from those states, either.

Location, location, propagation.
