I've been a 160 meter operator for 30 years. It used to be very crowded with many CW and SSB QSO's. But now one rarely hears a CW QSO and the few SSB guys are operating above 1900 kHz. The only mode that I see used almost 24/7 is FT8. FT8 is okay with me but I like JT65A and JT9 more. But it's hard to find a JT65A and JT9 QSO now because of FT8. But I'm not whining about it. Things change and you have to roll with the punches.
