Monitoring Research 7 MHz

The 7 MHz band now has many vacant channels, as observed here in Melbourne during our sunrise period.
 
This low occupancy rate has been influenced by many IBB services having been cancelled, and the steady shutting-down of other broadcasters.
 
The band is dominated by transmitters in China.
 
I suggest that when the rest of the world has closed down all of its SW services, broadcasts from China will still be there!
 
This summary of activity made on September 1 2014 may be of interest, across the time span 1900 to 1930.
