International RTTY never stayed "up the band."

That is not possible.  The "RTTY" band for Regions 1 and 3 
*IS* 7040 +/- activity.  Centering RTTY activity on 7070 is 
simply not possible in most areas until the rest of the 
world gets access to 7000-7100 and Regions 1/3 update their 
bandplans.  Even then, I doubt you will see much movement 
relieve the pressure around 7040 although it may help some 
between 7025 and 7035.
