QRSS on 80m

On Monday evening I was watching out for Colin (G6AVK) on 3559.9 kHz

He was transmitting QRSS3 with about 1W out, and propagation was rather poor. but at 2100Z the signal popped up :

... and stayed for about 20 minutes before fading out :

I am using a FT-817 with a 30m circumference loop antenna strung above the rooftop of the apartment building, and fed inside the apartment with 450 ohm air spaced ladder line and a good balanced tuner.
