I don't know if I'm imagining things, but I can't remember a 
protracted period of time when sunrise-sunset times have seemed so 
irrelevant than during the past few months.  I have a dual-mode
pushbutton in my car for WXKS/WKOX and can tell you that all throughout 
the late fall and most of the winter, 1430's and 1200's have continued
to impinge on their DAYTIME signals long after sunrise and well
before sunset (and I'm not sure the sports station La Canade is
the only offender).  Other AM dial spots have offered nighttime
reception while the Sun was well above the horizon.  After the
post about WNSH returning to talk, I couldn't pick it up where
it would usually come in fine during the day...other 1570's were 
slaughtering it and WQEW was coming in almsost as strong as
midnight and splattering WNSH to death.  By the way, this
morning, I noticed that Salem, NH's WCEC was off the a
scan of 1110, 1120 and 1130 presented hash from WILD-AM's IBOC;  
a pretty good signal from WBNW in Conkuhd, Mass; and WBBR 
in NYC.  From time to time Drudge posts messages from MASA and 
NOAA about solar activity, but not lately...maybe the Earth's 
polarity is changing!
