I don't think that Sprint Contest approach is the best one.

I fail to understand how you can find a clear frequency in a
FT5ZM-like case.

I have been monitoring the pileup on their split frequencies, what I
have heard from here was a 20 or 30 kHz wide range packed with S9+

You may be able to find a clear frequency on the wider 10m or 15m
bands at the cost of going up near the SSB lower band edge (if allowed
by local regulations), I don't think it would work on tight bands like
20m and 40m.

If I can't find a clear frequency I probably won't be able to hear the
DX calling on my QRG because it usually has a much weaker signal than
that of the callers in the pileup.
