I don't think you're crazy here.

Here's what I think might have been happening: if you're in a crowded
downtown of a big city like Seoul, at ground level you're probably in a
somewhat effective Faraday cage. A 300-meter-wavelength signal is going
to have a hard time penetrating a downtown street grid where the
buildings are only 20 or 30 meters apart from each other and hundreds of
meters tall.

Get on top of those buildings and you're out of the Faraday cage. The
signals are still being conducted along ground (and perhaps up the steel
of the buildings to your radio) rather than through skywave - but up on
the roof you're not within the giant steel city grid that attenuates the
long wavelengths of MW radio.

And we've known for 90+ years that steel building frames can have
effects on MW signals - go all the way back to 1922, when AT&T started
its station WBAY at one of its buildings in Lower Manhattan, only to
discover the building frame itself was resonant at WBAY's 360 meter
wavelength, causing it to absorb much of the transmitted signal. They
had another station, WEAF, at a different location that worked better
and they moved their programming over there.

(We had a similar situation in 1922 here in Rochester - the Times-Union
newspaper put WHQ radio on the air in March and found its building
absorbed too much of the signal from the rooftop antenna, so they shut
it down and sold the license to George Eastman of Kodak fame, who
restarted it later that same year as WHAM.)

Interesting that for me, the North corner fed loop is yielding the best
reception, and virtually nothing on my W corner fed loop. Still, no where
close to any audio, though! Walt

Colin, you are lucky. I can just barely see a signal/here a 1 kHz het on
1089. Certainly Nick's Fishbarrel shows barely anything. You have some
magic setup going on in Gordon Head??? Walt

That is the norm here also Walt. This morning,
963 was quite good at times with a woman in
Russian, and that was parallel occasionally with
a much weaker 1323 (details a bit late). I
think that CRI Korean on 1323 beams to Korea, and
away from us on the west coast, whereas CRI Russian beams roughly towards us.

73,

Nick
