This event will test your ingenuity and stealthy antenna talents in order to put up an antenna that will send your signals into the ether. It is not impossible. After all, a 160M dipole is only 272 feet long. Check your HOA rules for loop-holes.

And it will be worth pursuing, in order to grab that Top Band Endorsement Sticker with 20 QSOS on 160M. Only 44 of our 2,794  members have earned this one.

Last year, only 10 logs were submitted. That’s down from 12 in 2018. This is an excellent opportunity to steal the show!!  Let’s see if we can beat that turnout.

73, See you on 160 M
