Remember, it's a two-way street.  I would expect that many USA stations will
get E-mail from Europe when we chose to listen for them on 40 meter SSB below
7.040.  But would we be so brazen to do the same thing when they are CQing down

Plain and simple, 40 meters needs to be fixed.  One world-wide exclusive
allocation with sensible, consistent band plans for everyone in the world to
follow.  Then, the contest sponsors can make some informed scheduling
