I was in Bermuda for Spring Break from college in 1966.  I didn't do any 
DXing from there, but one night, around 1 AM, as I was pulling out of a 
restaurant parking lot on my rented moped, a VW bug pulled up next to me, 
and on its car radio, I heard WBZ, loud and clear, sounding like a local.

I wonder whether WBZ's signal to Bermuda has deteriorated or it was just 
a difference in atmospheric conditions.
