You know, there are some standard QRP SSB calling frequencies, but they
are not ones I tend to frequent. I operate 40 meters 99 per cent of the
time, and the calling frequency there is up in the foreign BC I
believe, so I rarely go there when things are hopping, I usually hang
down around 7225 + a few. Is this worth discussing more? If the calling
frequency is down there, I will hang there more often, but I seem to
recall that it is 7280 or something, a section of the band impossible
even for QRO guys after 6 pm.

Good questions for discussions. After the SSB foxhunts, we all know that
some of us own microphones and even know the precise buttons needed to
activate them. I am active at least one evening a week on 40 (and
sometimes 75) SSB QRP. If we had standard frequencies that were relatively
usable (or a small range), I might begin there.
