As low as 7025, as the SSTVers are no better on 7030 than 14230 &
there are few holes left between SSB stations between 7040 & 7050.

Sometimes even a little below 7025, but I & others I think try to avoid
that as there's enough SSB down there as it making things difficult
for those on CW.  Or at least that's what I find it like when I'm on CW.

With conditions the way they have been, things will be pretty tight
on 40 this weekend!
