Its not uncommon for several of the California stations to be heard in
Hawaii (KFI, KCBS)
It used to be common for high-power European and African stations to
be heard on the east coast of North America in the depths of winter
(when the ionosphere is at its quietest). Twenty-three years ago I
could hear Algeria on 891 in Boston pretty regularly; then a new local
station signed on at 890 and obliterated it.
Many of the signals are still there, but picking them out from the
interference now requires specialized equipment such as
software-defined radios and directional antennas. There are clubs for
people who are interested in this sort of thing.
