    As did many people, I read the letter today and was thinking, what even semi experienced amateur radio station would schedule anything that time of day on the upper end of the 40 meter band? "Came out of nowhere"? Come on...really? It was a scheduled half megawatt international broadcaster beaming to where? The Caribbean and South America. I will go out on the proverbial limb and say this was piss poor planning on someone's part. If you think you need 40 meters to get the traffic passed, maybe drop the net frequency below 7200 where there are far fewer broadcasters.

    Bad timing in a broadcast segment of this frequency band, its wide open then. Better to shift because its otherwise Don Quichotte fighting against windmills
