CQ 160

48 hours CQ-160M contest, crowded bands up to 1890, lots of interference and stations with horrible clicks.
Beverages are very necessary in order to get some more quiet signals, but no chance if a station from EU jumps on a DX-station in order to attract more customers….

Best DX East was JA (only 1), VR2 & E2X heard, JT worked.
Best DX West was XE and states TX, NM & AZ. 27 states worked (USA & Canada)
South only 3V8SF, no SA-continent, some Caribean stations.

Covid takes down many expeditions, especially the Carib was underperforming.
Usually there are many USA-expeditioners hunting multipliers on NA-mainland.
But no PJ4, P4, etc.
