I work nights. Generally Saturday through Monday nights. I'm the exception, I know, but afternoons Wednesday through Friday would work for me.

we should avoid weekends. As I don't work on Monday and Friday that would fit for me. For Monday I would prefer the 3 AM to be Monday not Tuesday.
Anyhow my QCX 20 would not be suitable for 3 AM I am afraid.

Any day is good for me.  Just be sure to schedule for good propagation on 40m!

Ok folks, I've got 32 responders to this poll.  That is enough to call it a valid statistical sample but out of 4k+ members, we should be able to get a little more feedback on this poll.  How about it?

Thanks

Well, as my life goes...the top three days preferred at this point are Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. Precisely the only 3 days I work... Figures. Hi-Hi!

Monday was originally decided by consensus and its also the only day I can do (a minor point in the great scheme of things).  It has also been in the FISTS, SKCC and CWops news letters and its on the WA7BNM contest calendar, QRPlabs website and 3830scores.  So its just becoming established and we'd be starting from scratch it it was moved from the last Monday.  An option might be to add in a second day per month on a different day/week.  It was decided to leave the weekends out because there is usually contest activity on and that means plenty of opportunity already to make contacts and work dx, by relying on the other fellow's kw and full-size 3-ele yagi!  On the flip side, contesters have little regard for the qrp frequencies and qcx to qcx would just get swamped. 

Incidentally, there is a world-wide week-long qrp event coming up from 1st to 7th July.  I hope you'll all join in and I look forward to working some of you then:
