[AMRadio] Is the novelty of the "new" 40m band wearing off already?

I can't speak to the day time, however at night, I have been hearing 1 
and 2 calls fairly regularly.  Last night I heard several 1 calls 
calling CQ while I was tinkering in the shack.  But you are correct 
when you note the decline in activity.  Perhaps it is the DXers that 
have crowded the band.  I have noted that there are several slopbucket 
opps that have parked themselves within a KC or 2 of 7.160.  Perhaps 
this is an intimidation technique, who knows?

I plan on listening to 7.160 for a while.  The signals are much 
stronger than 75M due in large part to the better antenna system I have 
for 40M.
