If you took all of the PSK31 signals, turned them into CW, and spaced them accordingly, the bands would sound a lot busier. The hams are there, a lot of them just aren't on phone or CW.

Right. And it's not only PSK31. There are watering holes up there for a half dozen digital modes, including several for K1JT's JT65 and JT9 modes. It's quite common for there to be more than a dozen signals to be decoded in a single 1-minute pass, all within the 2.7 kHz bandpass of a SSB signal.
