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 :-(
We chew this same fat every year.  The band is loaded with CW above 7040 
during CW DX contests, and is loaded with SSB below 7040 during SSB contests.  
There just is not enough room for all the stations in a contest situation.  The 
SSB guys flex in the CW contests and the CW guys need to flex in SSB contests.
