I worked Wayne K1CF this morning on 40 meters with JT9. I worked him before on 80 and 20 meters with JT9. On 160 meter I was spotted by F6DSV with JT9, that's 1021 km. No other activity on 160 meter so far. I called a few times CQ without results. On 20 meter I heard OD5PY calling CQ. He didn't answer my return. Also I wasn't spotted on 20 meter. Bad propagation at that moment for me. Normally is 20m the best band for me and my end fed long wire.
