I think I'll start doing that (logging what they send) tomorrow morning.
40 is poor -- but 10/15/20 were doing very nicely earlier. I got several new countries.
I too felt that 40 was poor but maybe I just set my expectations too high for 40? I'm pretty sure I worked all the major super-contest stations that were running on 40 without any difficulty and when I was running on 40 I worked a number of Euro/Asiatic Russia stations on 40 at the 100W level too.
Certainly 15 and 20 were very very deep wells to Europe and Asia/Pacific in the contest, just astoundingly good, and I was milking them both Saturday and especially Sunday.
Casually I work lots of 100W simple wire antenna stations on 40 all the time outside of contests, and I was expecting them to chime in during the ARRL DX, and that's probably where my expectation wasn't met.
