The one notable comment on my 160m set-up is that my antenna is a simple Alpha-Delta DX-A mounted on a 55 ft. tower, no beverages or listening antenna of any sort, just the DX-A. I have worked and confirmed 170+ countries on 160m with this antenna. So it still falls into the category of accomplishing a lot with a little.
AE5X also blogged about his 160m contact with K9W, so I guess I'm just trying to keep up;-)
Lots of good DX on, so now is the time to work the new ones.
