take a peek on 60m.  Im hearing  a fair number of stations, mostly rag chewers, with good to outstanding signals from Nebraska, TX, MO, MN, as well as back East.  Im in Ohio.

Might be what youre looking for!

I was disillusioned with 160 many years ago. It seemed then that if they did not know you or you were not part of a group that they would not talk to you especially on SSB.

That's no different from 75m, including frequency ownership.

I routinely call CQ on many bands. Out of 160-40, I was surprised that calling CQ on 160m was more successful than on 80. 40m is best, probably because of wide propagation and modest antenna requirements for a decent signal. 

Not as many hams on 160 as on 40-80 but the attitude is good IMHO.

One issue is that one needs to call when hams listen.

Not having an antenna for 160,I load up my 80m dipole on that band. I don`t hear much cw there,mostly W1AW around 1802. Plenty of ssb though. I`ve worked mostly local stations on that band. Don`t hear much from 1800-1810,most cw activity is above that. Seems like they`re looking for dx.
