Nothing lika an open band

Have you ever watched static on the analog television after the broadcaster off the air? How about listening to 10 meters on the down side of teh sunspot cycle . . .you know just listening to white nose. I can recall doing that a while back (way back!) when I decided to check my SWR. Instead of going into tune mode, i simply did "aaahhhhhhh" sort of thing. Out the dead band, comes back " You can at least identify your self!"
  Turned out to be a station in Colorado.  I wonder how often a band is "dead" just because no one is trying. Sort of profound?
