It depends on the operator. Most of the time I have heard them they
are sending their call every couple of QSOs. There was one guy on 30
who wasn't sending his call at all, but I think he might have been a
pirate. I heard them listening as high as 7039 last night. Maybe
someone can send the pilots an email to see if they can get them
to do SSB on Saturday night prior to 0400 UTC. Eighty may be
a problem as well (albeit a smaller one) they were parked on 3523
last night listening up, but the pileup wasn't nearly as wide as 40.
Might be good to see if they can be chased down to 160 during
the 0200 to 0400 time slot although they may be there anyway based
on last nights telnet spots.
