I have always heard from all my 
old(er) elmers that it takes two things to work on 160.  1. 
Power   2 a vertical antenna.

back around Christmas of 1975, 160 meters was very quiet in Michigan.  I ran a Lear T30 with  four 6L6's (MOPA) where two of them were for the P-P modulator. This thing ran 20 watts out into my 1/4 wave inverted L. I worked states all over the USA with that rig!

Here is a picture i found on the web:
