other aspect of 40m: band plan violations! ... many european stations
made qso's below 7.040, the lowest i heard was around 7.010 ... making
CW contacts impossible

just to remember:

XII. DISQUALIFICATION: Violation of amateur radio regulations in the
country of the
contestant, or the rules of the contest; unsportsmanlike conduct
will be deemed sufficient cause for disqualification.
