It seemed to me the band was dead too on Saturday morning,I haven't heard
even one NA station from 0400 utc.Anyway it changed just before our sunset
and around 0600 utc I heard many Caribbean with quite good
signals/9Y4H,6Y4A,V26KW/ but it lasted only about 20 minutes.
That morning was lucky for me too with one new country 3E1DX
/0555/.Unfortunately again I missed 8R1K who rarely is looking for Europe.
