We have worked a new one last night VU2CPL on CW and played a little in Russian-160 contest. Few NA folks were there as well. So the band is alive and well. We don't care about FT8 junk.

>I expected meteor showers to add ionization that would be beneficial for propagation..
> VHF and UHF hams do find their tails useful to make contacts .
>Over the years I have noticed a reduction of DX signals on 160 meters during these times.
