Yes the old 80m and 40m novice bands have been COOKING 
I am even venturing above 7150 occasionally for the OLD, 
OLD 40m CW band - why not? It's operfectly legal to use CW 
there. For the younger guys - we used to use 7150 - 7200 all 
the time as part of the "novice sub-band."

See you on the air guys!
> once i thought i would find a community on 7050 of boat anchor type fellows, but that has not happened. neither on the low end of the 80 meter band. but.....i have had many (20+) enjoyable contacts on the 80 meter novice band reciently, some with low power tube stations. 
> the reason i think this is so is the local element of 80 meters, the activity by a group of hams who used to use the 80m novice band, and, prompted (i guess) by the SKCC group
