This is more of an interesting catch than anything else.
I've picked up 1310 CIWW Ottawa (50kW DA-2) in north Medford more than once at night. Looking at the night pattern (5 antennas), it must be coming off a lobe (there's one pointing ESE) but it would seem that we're between lobes. Most of the signal is aimed to the north, at greater Ottawa. Maybe this makes it a DX catch more than a reliable one, though I've been able to catch it more than once.
Before they moved to FM, 700 CHSJ in St. John, NB was a daytime regular in Eastie, Southie, North Shore, etc., where there was a straight line salt water path and could also be heard inland.

I know some of our fellow Boston Radio geeks are DX-ers.
I have been trying to comprise a list of Canadian stations that can be
picked up pretty regularly at night here in New England.
Here's what I typically hear (in order of reliability).
Let me know if I am missing any good ones.
-730 - CKAC - Radio Circulation / Traffic (French) - Montreal
-740 - (When away from WJIB's signal) - CFZM - Toronto - Oldies
-1580 - CKDO - Classic Hits - simulcast with sister FM - Durham, Ontario
-860 (When I am not close to the WEEI towers) - CJBC - Toronto
-900 - CHML - Hamilton Ontario
-940 - CFNV - Montreal
What did I miss?
I do miss hearing the great CBC programs that used to be on AM.
