Most of the USA is at work in the middle of the afternoon on a weekday.  FWIW, I spent 1-1/2 hours on AO-40 from 0130 to 0300 utc and never heard even one European station, even though Western Europe was in the window most of that time.  It is the unfortunate nature of DX communications that convenient times are rarely coincident.
