"Having Fun on 160M !"
by Jim Peterson, K6EI

Jim will talk about some commonly held myths about 160 meters, our only MF (Medium Frequency) band.  He will also discuss how to get on the air and have fun on the Top Band.  He'll cover one of the biggest challenges (Top Band antennas) as well as some of the things that make MF propagation quite different from HF propagation.
