A similar thing happened to me:

For a while, I used to hang out on 10mtrs to catch a friend who had moved
to Texas.
This was done on 28390kc...normally SSB there.
One day, after trying both 'phone and cw, with no results, I got a faint cw
call from .. I think ... it was Brazil.

By the way..I have not yet gotten scolded for running CW on a phone band...
only a few dummy comments like ' duh! somboddy is keying dere mike'

So as long as it QRM's no one, there's no reason to not run CW on a blank freq.
