    I have noticed generally crappy conditions on 40 M CW, the only band I monitor. The old standby's like Karel, OK1CF, are not heard here in Maryland. Some DX, but most of Europe is quiet here in the Evening and VK/ZL is not much above S4 in the mornings. Even stations from Western US are very weak.

    I've also noticed the lack of Europeans on 30 and 40m in the evenings recently, with a few minor exceptions like the HB0/HA station. However, the Pacific has been nice on the upper bands. I've worked a few new countries on 15 and 20m RTTY the last couple evenings.

    Walt,

    Yeah, your right. HB0/HA4XG was pretty strong. But everything else was pretty dead (except T96Q and T99W). I was thinking about this too. Maybe it is "10 meter syndrome": everyone listening and nobody calling.
