Just for clarification I mentioned a QSO on 160 between PY3 and 4W SSB low power when there is no darkness near PY3 SR, only few minutes near SS.

During winter I can hear Europe on 40 m all day long in South Florida, it is very common on 40m. Not the same on 160m.

One of our SADXA members just wrote a paper about the possibility of daytime 40-meter DX during mid-December.

But on this subject I would like to know who made the ONE 160-meter SSB QSO with VP6D.
