I heard about this some time ago.
I wonder what 40 would be like at night, I think it goes real long skip.
I often hear holes at night, after the broadcast clears out I guess, with no 
ham activity.

I often hear CW at night in the lower part of the band, seems to be Eastern 
half of the US stuff...
