Re: Late night / early morning activity?
I agree with all that Rick said. My experience is you find some interesting contacts when calling CQ on a "dead" band. 20 meters in the middle of the night sometimes will give you a QSO or two. Also, do not forget 30 meters seems to be open to somewhere just about all of the time but there are not many people using 30 meters. I've worked Hawaii and Australia on 40 meter PSK31, that's 4,800 and 11,600 miles respectively. It was dark here but daylight there. You might check for European stations on 40 meters 0200 to 0600 UTC, around or just after sunrise at their end. They are usually on 7.040, not 7.070.
It takes time and can be frustrating but you will get it done if you keep trying. The 070 folks are great and will help.
