    I presume you mean 1 SSB and 1 FT8, both on 20.

    What happens on FD around local midnight is that many folks shut down. On 20 and higher, this is usually because the band is dead. On 40 and 80/75, it's because the ops aren't serious iron-bottom operators, or, the group hasn't scheduled anyone for the overnight.

    40 CW never went dead.

    IMHO, FD really IS a contest!

    But it's not JUST a contest. Big difference.

    What you did was excellent!

    Of course.....
