Yes, my son learned all about AM DXing over the past four years or so 
from trying to find Red Sox games on the clock radio by his bed.  (Up 
here in the Adirondacks, WTIC has been the most consistent source, but 
there have been  many nights when propagation vagaries forced him to 
search for alternate frequencies.)

Recently he received a portable XM radio and subscription as a gift, so 
I suspect his AM DXing days are over -- at least for now.   But when I 
talk about "selective fade" he knows what I'm referring to....
