160 meter contesting notes:

I have been entering the CQ and ARRL 160 meter CW contests the last 2 years as QRP to test the effectiveness of my 160 L.

I have determined that I have a consistant night time range of 700 miles. I think this pretty good for 5 watts and a bent piece of wire.

In ARRL 160 (2013) my signal was worked in France and as far west as Wyoming. Both were worked before 11 pm local.

CQWW 160 CW (2012) I worked Hawaii KH6, which is about as good as I think I can do with 5 watts output.

I have finished my QRP operating on 160.

I now operate with 100-1200 watts depending on conditions.
