If you're interested in a group of folks that use PSK31 as a propagation indicator...and may even be interested in giving 60 meters a try...visit http://www.PropNET.org
If you formatted your TX's like a PropNET ID, you may find people in the USA willing to be RXing around the clock to document when the band is open across the Atlantic.
'just making the offer.

An interesting exchange between k6qi and the fcc a while back over the emissions allowable on the , then new, 5 meg band, ending in simplicity , with the FCC pointing out that the band was under the direct control of NITA and as such, it was nothing to do with them 'squire'
This post from wa1wa would indicate, this still to be the case , as long as it fits in b/w , anything go's , [this reflects rest of world regulations on this subject] .
The wording of the fcc document linked, may reflect this , as its appears to be comparative as opposed to directive , 'pactor 111 technique , I assume to loosely infers mfsk type , similarly for psk31 psk carrier ?
Commission restricts emission designator 2K80J2D to data using PACTOR-III technique and emission designator 60H0J2B to data using PSK31 technique.
I don't know, what propagation is like at the moment, but Ive certainly managed a psk31 beacon decode to the usa , Opera to yourself ? and VK with the help of vk3kck as rx [ no tx permit in vk] ,
can set up if anyone wants to try to uk ?
