This winter has been most interesting for me. I've been able to copy Californian stations during the daylight hours here, lately. Some days, better than others. That's quite a unique experience. I think it helps that I am far enough away from local stations that I am not overloaded.
There are even times when local stations are being interfered with by distant stations. Even 770, a strong local, has shared my receiver's detection with some other station somewhat weaker, yet still strong enough to make listening a bit frustrating. This, during the DAY!
Night DXing is hot. Even with a simple radio with an internal bar loop antenna.
