[CQ-Contest] Peaceful Coexistence on 40M tonight

I don't think I've seen anyone else mention this, but tonight WAE Phone and the NA CW Sprint will potentially conflict on 40M from 0000Z-0400Z (but particularly 0100-0300Z).

If the WAE guys will stay above 7040 (which they are supposed to by the Region 1 band plan), and if the Sprinters will stay below that line, then things shouldn't be too bad.  I expect Sprinters will be all the way down to 7000, but since it is only for a couple of hours, I hope our CW DXer friends won't be too upset.

It will also help if the non-European stations working split in WAE don't specify listening frequencies below 7040!

Thanks, everyone!
