I was amazed at how early I was able to work EU last night on 40.  
Normally I hear them fine but never ever do they respond....not so 
yesterday.  I wish I had tried earlier.  There were plenty I called that 
we couldn't make it happen or they just never heard me.

I tried calling CQ as well and got 2 people even with spots.

Strange.  Not that US and Zone 4 is rare.
