K0XP wonders why:

"........  that over a whole weekend of a contest, we lil whipperschnappers 
can't seem to achieve a rate over 40 Qs/hour; yet, during an ordinary weeknight 
(during a sunspot min yet), calling CQ on 80 or 40 will yield unlimited pileups 
of Europeans??????????????"

Of the thoughts that come quickly to mind, here are two:

1.  On an ordinary weeknight you are not competing with the loud stations, both 
W/VE and those in EU.

2.  The EU's are likely attracted to your K-zero call.  You might see your rate 
reduce as they learn that you are in Connecticut  :>).
