This is about the worst conditions I've heard.
I have unusually heavy noise from 15 to 20M and I can barely make out VK9NT who is usually around 59 to Hawaii. I only heard him and someone from Alabama calling him.
00:16 UTC 5/9/13 A=7 K=1 SFI=126 SN=118.
From the perspective of East Coast of US... while you were unable to make out VK9NT, I had a fine QSO with them on 10M at the same time.
15M was open to the Middle East exceptionally late (like 10PM local time).
