I have 172 entities on 80M, and the variety is really excellent. I was listening to 160M just a minute ago and it was soooo boring. I switched to 80M and I’m hearing 3C3W pounding in. That led me to look at my log and here I am.
I think the deal with post DXCC DX-ing is variety. 80M is still a band that takes some intestinal fortitude and big antennas, but it offers us on the West Coast a lot more than 160M does.
So, I am starting to like 80M a lot – just based on the fact that there is some juicy DX there and often.
