On the US west coast we get a lot of signals from Asia. You can hear the
Chinese domestics loud and clear in the mornings local time. Lots of
Radio Free Asia freqs, too. Problem is, these are all in Chinese. You're
out of luck if you don't know Chinese. But we get Australia and New
Zealand just fine, and those are usually in English. I don't get much
from Africa, although I've picked up Rwanda in French around 1500 UTC or
so. (I'm in northern California.) Curiously, I have a hard time picking
up Latino tropical band stations here-all I hear on the lower bands is
static and a couple superpowered Brazilians.
