Imagine what it looks like from our (MN) end Hank. We lose 20 meters 3 hours 
before Sprint even starts and 40 meters an hour before it starts. 

However I don't see any way to move times around that won't have a negative 
impact on somebody.

Might help to move to 2300Z start time, but 40 was LOOONNNGGGG at 2300Z. I lost 
Minnesota stations in the MNQP from SW Michigan well before that, and had to 
switch to 80 metres for the final hour to find MN.I was pleasantly surprised to 
be able to work Minnesota with 5 watts on 80 metres @ 2300Z. Typically QRP on 
80 won't hack such a path until much later in the evening.72/73 de n8xx
