Wednesday evening into Thursday morning works for me.  Roger, there is
already a 0300Z CWops session the same night which makes this a good choice,
you will see a big spike up in NA 160M activity 0350z-0400z and if I see I'm
being heard in EU by reversebeacon I will stick around on 160M afterward
through EU sunrise.
