We shouldn't blame the guys who were using the Window in daylight -- the
rules specifically allow that:
"Please observe the DX window from 1830 to 1835 kHz during the hours of
darkness. The DX window is for intercontinental contacts."
IF there is going to be a DX Window (and that's another discussion
entirely) it should be day and night since it is so easy for stations in
daylight to QRM stations in darkness who are still working lots of DX.
