I've noticed that they start assigning the open time around 9AM eastern. Usually all of the open time assigned within the next hour. I have only once gotten an assignment with less than 15 hrs notice.

Short call reserve seems to be the wild card. The one nice thing about short call is that you can be on your commute for the first two hours, so if you let them know, you aren't expected to answer your phone for that time.
