I suspect the bands are open a  lot more than we think, but if everyone 
assumes the band is closed or waits for someone else to call CQ and no-one 
transmits,  no signals will be heard and the band WILL  sound dead

I often hear multiple CW beacons chirping away at the bottom end of the 
"dead" 10m band.
