The published rules on the FT4 NS Website say to use "the standard FT4 frequencies".
I believe that means 3.575, 7.047.5, 14.084, 21.140, 28.180, and 50.318.
Like you, I also tried 28.080, 21.080, and 7.080, and saw no activity there.
Most of the standard FT4 frequencies see little or no FT4 activity, except for 14.080, which is busy daily.

 I thought the agreement prior to the contest was that we would operate 
80 Khz above the bottom of the band on 80 thru 10m; however, I found no 
activity on 7.080. Everybody was on 7.0475. Never went to 80m, so no 
idea where people were.

I do think this needs to be standardized and published. I can see some 
advantages working on common frequencies with others -- you may get 
incidental contacts with non-contestors; however, there is a lot to be 
said to be on frequencies dedicated to the contest.

Any suggestions?
