They seem to be missing one of the prime spots on 20m at least for the
western USA.  That is 0200-0600.  We consistently hear stations from
that part of the world in that time period.

Maybe the ops don't understand that there is a good opening there or
they prefer a different bad at that time period.  Maybe there are other
reasons for not being on in that time period on RTTY.

>>>7O6T was QRV 20m RTTY during that time slot on both 2012-05-06 and
2012-05-07, working North American stations on both days. The solar flux has
increased since then, which may have weakened this opening by increasing
E-layer absorption above the MUF.
