I just made pass thru 20 meters, and made a few notes of signal  strengths.  
Obviously not scientific!
Rig ICOM 756 PRO3, AGC set slow. No preamp on, 2.4 filter
Ant Cushcraft A3 tribander at 25'
1330 Z  ( 8:30am local) in Belleville, IL

ER0WW +15
DR1A +15

of them

Just an idea of what the loudest European stations sound like, in southwest  
Illinois, on 20, at the bottom of the solar cycle, with a low tribander!   And 
condx today seem very good!!
