 I have a BC station there now.
 Tim, can you do 20m? Right now my 20m dipole is down. I'm hearing some good QSO's on usb and the noise level is zilch(20m). I think I'll put my antenna bk up this afternoon and try 20 in the morning Thursday. Conditions as bad as yesterday..but we tried.

I tried 40m a  couple of times in late afternoon yesterday and the day before, but couldn't raise anyone. Later in the evening the QRN level was too high for comfort, so turned everything off.

Right now, 1500 GMT Wednesday, the band is noisy.  Probably due to this:
