This will be my first 160m SSB contest. Is it popular? How have you done in the past?  I have a dipole that does real well out of a rare county (Meigs, OH) so I hope to be up all night having fun. (or until the snacks run out).
And how popular are the state QSO parties this weekend?

Since no one replied to this thread its apparent that this contest is not popular. I'll be working it anyways.

Here's the US single op top 10 scores posted on 3830 from last year's event:

N8TR               897    58    21    20    169,692 NCC

(Formatting will probably not hold up but the first number is QSOs, then it's W/VE mults, DX mults, op time, and score.)

One could also take a peek at:
http://www.cq-amateur-radio.com/160_Results_Dec0811909.pdf
where one would find that "2008 was another record-setting year log wise. There were....926 SSB logs received."

Suffice to say there are plenty of participants.

Good luck and have fun!
