I seem to not have any problem making SSB contacts during the evening
hours in the lower end of 40 meters since the most of the foreign
broadcasters moved up above 7200 KHz. Even have made several AM contacts
on or around 7160 KHz during the evening hours. Antenna is a simple
inverted vee apex up about 50 feet. Power generally on SSB is 100 watts
and occasionally fire it up the Heath SB-200 linear. Transmitter is
either the CE 100V, Icom 756 PRO II, or the Flex 5000. All three rigs can
also be used on AM.
