First of all, CQWW RTTY is a major contest event.
Relatively speaking, TQP is the more minor event.

7040 is the international RTTY calling frequency.
You would expect a lot of activity around that
part of the band.

If the CW operators have problems with RTTY being
in that part of the band, why not go above 7125,
where RTTY cannot go?
