FT8 is alive on 40 meters! How many stations will I hear?

I keep hearing "the bands are dead". Well in this live stream, let’s see how much I can hear! I have my radio running on the 40 meter (7 MHz) band running FT8.

As you can see, Gridtracker is running with a realtime map including the RX calls, RX DXCC and realtime receiving data. How many stations will I hear?

I will be running this from Monday 28th Dec 12:00 UTC through to around 22:00 UTC which is 11pm to around 9am local (all night).

See if I hear you! How far away from my station are you when I decoded you? Let me know in the live chat and comments!

Antenna is a simple EFHW antenna.
