About noon. Was also listening coming back into St Louis. Started detecting the Illinois traffic advisory station about the same location, west of Wentzville.  That was about 8 PM last evening around sunset.

Seems that part of the spectrum (and the nearby 600 meter ham band) propagates pretty well  And I was listening with a standard non-resonant car-radio antenna. Smiley
I recall reading that the 500kHz CW traffic that went between the (on-fire) Prinsendam and the tanker Williamsburgh (and anyone else who would listen) in the Gulf of Alaska was picked up all the way down in Australia.

530 is in Cuba. I live near Key West Fl and can receive it day and night any time. Good music and very little talk.

In the Eastern half of the US, there is Radio Vision Cristiana, which broadcasts religious programs, many in Spanish. Or, if it's non-religious with music and talk, it might be Radio Enciclopedia, from Cuba. There's also another station but less powerful, R. Rebelde also in Cuba. R. Rebelde is a Cuban network, but factual information about Cuban stations other than what we DX'ers hear is mostly unavailable.
This may help with a couple of prior questions.

That's strange that a traffic service would use 530khz. And to be heard a long distance!
When conditions are right, the AM band really shines. The CCRadio is great. The beauty of the low end of the band is that fading is not too bad, except for mother nature.
I wonder if a magnetic loop antenna can null out some of the stations on a desired freq so you can listen to the Cuban station. I'll try here in Western Pa. and give a listen for some nice audio. Usually Spanish music is very nice.
