I tried for this station basically on a dare  ;D

Someone on Facebook asked if I could hear it, they had it on the Twente SDR. I had a weak carrier as early as around 1800z, and as of 1857 I have been hearing weak audio. Hoping for something more substantial before they sign off, which is apparently around 2100.

I have been copying them here recently but at the +/- 0330z sign on - - pretty good copy as long as hams aren't on a nearby freq - if they're not around, it's been quite strong & clear.  I was surprised myself.
Near Chicago, IL USA.  Drake R8, Ten-Tec RX340, JRC NRD545, Watkins Johnson HF-1000, Wellbrook loop at 28', 43m inverted vee.  Please QSL to fpeconsultant@aol.com thanks.
