I am sure you have seen the same thing (as I have) in DM65 over the past

DM04 encompasses many very quite areas which are a joy from which to operate.
For me personally, it was always a disappointment how few people wanted to
work DM04 during the various scatter contests given the multitude of
operators available here.
This too will pass.
