Randy - I see PSK31 signals most all the time, but not on 40m. That seems to be a very late afternoon/evening/night band for me. 20m seems to work from a bit after sun up to evening time.  I'm using both a Hustler 6BTV (over 40 radials) and a 20m Extended Double Zepp oriented NE/SW. The Hustler is the 40m antenna and I alternate between them on 20m.

I can see PSK31 signals virtually 24hrs a day.

What antenna are you using?

I rarely see anything (PSK-31wise, anyhow) on forty meters unless it's at night.  Could be my antenna setup, or just that I'm not looking that diligently on forty.

Glad you got somebody at least!

Wow, 40M is awful quiet.  I’ve been calling for about 1/2 hour now and not a trace of a signal!!!
