I am in NC and occasionally try 160 psk31 at 1807.  Have about 20 states and Canada confirmed.  Good for about 500 miles on a good night.  There will be some club activity in contests in fall and winter.  Tstorms here in the southeast make it hard to use until fall.  I have a 160 meter Carolina Windom.  Probably could do better with a separate low noise antenna on receive.

Just wondered if there's been any activity on 160m lately.  I finally have a compromise antenna that will let me attempt to play on that band but as expected the noise floor is quite high.
