    40 meters definitely has usable propagation for AM. I've had success with 20 watts and a dipole when band conditions are right. Usually an hour or two before sunset. After that, the QRN static and high power SW stations get started. I find 40 meter AM attracts a more old fashioned and polite operating style. Which is a good thing.

    I'm sure after midnight there is good 40 meter AM propagation, but no one's awake.

    In the Northeast, depending on 40 meter condx, there is occasional activity around noon EST. There is often a CQ or two around 4 or 5 PM EST. Then at 8 PM EST there are usually a few that brave the QRM and QRN.

    Worked Mike WZ5Q last night on 3880 from around 9:15 to 11 p.m. He had an easy to copy signal through a lot of storm static. Never expected a 900+ mile QSO on 75 m. with a cloud burner here this time of year. One of those call CQ and be surprised kind of events.

    I had a similar QSO late the other night with Timtron. Solid Q5 signal both ways, nothing else but lightning static in the rest of the band.
