I guess my point for posting the picture is to indicate that 15 meter propagation exists even at night but you need bodies there to take advantage of it. Obviously, some just like to hang around 75 meters and give weather reports at their location, talk about their grass mold or whatever, their latest medical condition, etc. AM can have a great presence on 15 if more live bodies would go there and use it. Look at the 15 meter map today at 5:00 PM EDT. Lots of stations on the air but probably almost zero AM. It's a shame because it's a great opportunity to expand your AM universe.

60 years ago these might have been all AM signals.
