  160 meter band, also known as a Top Band, bordering on medium waves, is the most difficult Ham band in HF spectrum. Plagued by atmospheric and man made noise, unpredictable propagation, it is the most challenging band to operate. Antennas and equipment require special considerations. Some (DXers) specialize in chasing the countries and zones, some (contesters) specialize in operating contests.

 While DXers are trying to work as many countries as possible and have no time limit, contesters have to work as many stations as possible in short time. Sometimes it takes few years trying to catch good propagation conditions during sunspot minima in order to beat that record. Here are the listings of the world's best Top Band operators researched and kept by Yuri Blanarovich, K3BU (also VE1BY, VE3BMV, C6AYB) e-mail K3BU
