You might also want to aim for Radio Australia on 9580 from 1200-1400
or so. If conditions are good, you might find RA or Radio New Zealand
on the 16m or 13m bands in the late evening (the sunspot cycle is on
the way up now).
Evening BCB targets would include WLW in Cincinnati (700), KYW in
Philadelphia (1060), and you should be able to pull in Imus from NYC
(WFAN, 660?) in the morning. You might also want to try for Canadian
MW stations, CBC and all that, since you probably don't hear those too
often in southern CA. Also don't forget to scan the expanded band in
the evening (1600-1700KHz).
