2.537MHz  CW  AI3  0007z  519 report.
2.507MHz  CW  ES6  0022z  419 report.
2.505MHz  CW  EJ7  0022z  319 report.

NB: Very strange to have DNB's in at this time as 0001z is 10.00am local time during my morning daylight, Grey Line has well and truly gone so maybe some ducting?  I live 110kms away from the ocean in a direct line and have a mountain range between.  All beacons had faded out by 0034z.
