Fellow contesters

during the ARRL DX SSB Contest this weekend I turned across the 40m band 
several times in S&P and couldn't but notice that many north american 
stations (I'd guess about 80%) were listening below 7040 and I can only 
wonder how succesfull they were generating pileups: that's definitely in 
the CW-part of the band !
While it is very common to expand the phone part of the band slightly 
below 7040 and into the part assigned to digital modes in the large 
contest in my opinion listening as low as 7019 is definitely overdoing 
it. Basically these operators ask us to violate the rules :-(
