The low end of 6 meters is used EXTENSIVELY on CW for weak signal
intercontinental DX.
Those who do not use CW just miss out. CW is legal on all 4 Mcs. of 6 meters
yet when used
above 50.100 or better yet 50.125 is usually met with an ill informed jammer
who thinks it is
illegal to use in the "phone" portion of the band.

73 de K0AZ       6 Meter DXCC #436 and 6 Meter WAZ #37      not all but
mostly CW.

I guess a lot depends on what you do on 6 and 2 meters. Many of the
Technicians, Generals, Advanced, and Extra Class amateurs use the
dedicated CW sub bands to work "weak-signal" DX during times of tropo,
aurora, Sporadic E, and F2 type conditions and also for those who
experiment with moonbounce. With today's arsenal of digital code readers
and computer generated code sending, one does not have to pass a code
test to send and receive code. PSK-31 and other digital coded formats are
also becoming very popular in the VHF bands for weak-signal work.
