I love CW.  It's pretty much the only mode I operate.

RTTY is entitled to be there, just as much as CW is.

Oh yes, 7040 is the international RTTY calling frequency.
You would expect there to be a lot of RTTY there.

If sharing the band with RTTY operators was such a
huge problem, then why didn't you just move above 7125,
where the RTTY operators can't go?
