The band goes long early. So it is bad for semi local pirates a few hundred miles away, but much better for DX.

Don't worry as soon as I go on the air the band is guaranteed to go long within 10 Min

Heard neither a dit nor a dah of last evening's code practice session  on 7047.5 from W1AW, a bit over 500 mi from my QTH. 
At the same time, the 3581.5 freq was readable but with heavy QSB.

Tuning around earlier this a.m. on 40 & 41 meters, seemed like prop was down. One unreadable weak CW around 7045, and one weak, barely readable SSB QSO in Spanish higher in the band. The Chinese BCB stations higher up in the 41 meter band weren't very audible, either. Was better a couple mornings ago.
