Most of the 40M CW activity I hear is right around 7030. I only hear 40M 
RTTY stuff during contests.

A couple months ago a local friend and I did some 40M AM hear locally on 
7190.

Propagation is in the SEWER! I keep trying to hear the 20M beacon near San 
Jose, Ca. no luck so far.

Sometimes I feel that everyone has just moved to the Internet mail lists!
