My question is why have SSB DX contests on 160M at all? JA has no SSB
segment on 160M, which makes a 160M SSB DX contesting a complete waste
of time west of the Rockies, and the limited allocation in Region One
seriously limits activity. SSB NAQP is sort of reasonable -- I have no
idea how our east coast brethren behave, but west of the Rockies,
there's activity for no more than about 90 minutes, it pretty much stays
above 1840, and it's a 100W contest.
