Were you on about 12:50 UTC? I heard something making it above the noise there, a woman singing for awhile and then in it gradually faded out a little after 13:10. It was weak and in and out at best. At least I finally heard something there.

yes, i was on at that time but i was testing/calibrating between 1000z and 1300z with different pieces of audio making sure the audio response was acceptable on the analyzer along with other RF/audio measurements and calibrations.
the station power is 50 watts utilizing daytime NVIS.
audio response is 5Hz to 5Khz.
thanks ! ;)
