Yes we should not hope for too much, at least not short term.
just checked 7100-7200 a few minutes ago and it is more or
less filled up, I found 13 stations in this segment. The
thing on 7165 is super loud more then S9+60dB.
In any case it will be interesting to see next month.
There is even a BC stn on 7070 kHz.
