There were three announced 160M activations this summer that never happened.
There have been at least 4 mega DXpeditions whose 160M activation was pitiful in the last several years. I do understand that its a hard band to put antennas up (and keep them up) and that it also doesn’t have the “ROI” that other bands offer.
I had expected as we slide down the sunspot cycle that more would be interested in Top Band. But it seems like just the opposite is happening.
I’m wondering if Top Band has seen it’s best days or if I’m just a little ahead of myself. Autumn is almost here in the Northern Hemisphere, so fingers crossed that there will be more 160M DX.
