You can always try it, and see for yourself, get on with some DX right after
the contest, and see how long signals last at the certain level, and when
they start dropping rapidly. Do the same test at other, non contest days, at
the same time, with similar propagation and see what signals levels you will
experience and if you get the same phenomena.
Just try to add up all contest stations with perpetual CQing, multiply by
number of (Italian :-) watts and see how much energy you will come up with.
You might be amazed. Then you tell us if it only happens on April 1st.
