[AMRadio] AM Window on 15 Meters?

As 10 meters began its decline a few years ago, I would often ask AM 
operators if they ever used 15 meters. With very few exceptions, the answer 
would usually go something like: "No, because I never hear anyone else down 
there."

There was AM activity for a brief time around 21.400, and on 21.430. But, in 
casual tuning on the weekends, I have heard less than 5 AM stations on 15 
meters within the past year.

I say all that to ask just where is the "AM window" on 15 meters?

And, why don't more of us operate there?

Unless there's a contest, 15 meters is usually not crowded. Those of us who 
run rice boxes or similar power can usually hold our own there once a 
contact is established.
