>From about 0100 to 0300 UTC, 40 meters should be very interesting.  There 
will likely be 3 major events all taking place at the same time - and the 
band will be very crowded.  

The three activities are the RTTY contest - the CW Sprint and the 3Y0PI 
pileup (or whomever it is that has that pileup - they never send their call).

In the past, the CW Sprinters have moved down the band and things worked 
out.  However, there is likely going to be a hornets nest of stations calling
the 3Y from 7025 up to about 7045.   Just this evening, I worked them when I
was on 7042.

I suspect you will find the CW Sprint operators splitting their time between
the extra band and up above the RTTY activity.  

Just a heads up so you won't be totally shocked when you QSY from 20 meters
down to 40 and wonder what the heck is going on.
