WKAL Rome NY 1450 DX Test - Day One

WKAL is doing a DX test over two nights, Saturday the 14th and Sunday the 15th from 03:00 to 07:00, with morse code segments of 5 minutes every TOH and BOH. The first day in Kongsfjord was disappointing, due to effects from a coronal hole, so conditions were poor as the MW spectrum below shows. I did hear Bermuda tentatively just after 05:00, and probably Colombia at 07:02, but nothing more. Not even a hint of morse.

Incidentally, WWXL Manchester KY was also testing on 1450 at 05:00 and 30 minutes onwards.
Nothing audible prior to 05:00, and not a lot of juice afterwards either
I'm hoping for better results on Sunday!
