I recorded both 5 and 10MHz and saw 10MHz fade out sometime after 0000Z,
while 5MHz stayed very solid.  I was also seeing 15 and 20MHz earlier in
the afternoon, but guessed that they would both disappear before the
magic hour.  But at about 3:30EST, 15MHz was a really beautiful signal.

I used a Gap Titan ground mounted multi-band ham vertical antenna here
in Dayton, OH.
