I see that you were spotted by 4 RBN stations in the Eastern part of the US
(MA, MD, NH, and PA), and nothing West of that. As Mike (N2MS) said, 0400
UTC is very late in the evening for working folks that live in the East
Coast or Midwest USA as 0400 UTC is currently midnight local time in the
East Coast and parts of Midwest USA (we do a time change this coming
weekend and then 0400 UTC will be 11pm local time). As an example I'm in
bed around 0130 UTC, and have to set my alarm clock to wake up in the early
morning hours to hear you (which I often do), and then I go back to bed.
