There isn't one answer to the question - it depends upon where in the world you live.  Here in the Southeast, it's 80 meters at night and 40 during the daytime.  When the sunspots come back, 20 will be very active during the day primarily.

For a Technician Class licensee, 2m FM on repeaters.

The only HF band a Tech has voice privileges on is 10 meters.

73,

A smoking section in a restaurant makes as much sense as a peeing section in a swimming pool.

We have a great deal of local and medium distance [500 to 1000 or so mile radius] activity on 80 at night and in the AM.  A great deal of net activity on this band in our area.

40 varies - I hear an awful lot of broadcast DX, but also a lot of voice.

20 during the day is often busy - today during the contest you could have walked across the ocean on the traffic.

Of the HF bands currently, I'd say 20m day and 75m night.

I hear chatter all afternoon, evening, night, and late night on 75m to the point that every 3-4 kHz is another QSO.  There's not as much on 40 or any other band after dark.
