Hi Will

It does happen on 20 or lower.
Rates above 200 can be done on 20 and even on 40 or 80.

I had a 254 hour on 40 from 9Y4H during CQWW CW 96
I had a 255 hour on 40 from P40E during CQWW CW 97
I had a 224 hour on 40 from P40E during CQWW CW 98
I had a 226 hour on 40 from P40E during CQWW CW 99

and all above working mainly european.
