When I travelled in Ireland years ago, in the early evening and
again about dawn, Switzerland (to the east) could be nulled to
reveal Senegal (to the south).  The null towards Switzerland
also substantially reduced any Middle Eastern and Russian /
Ukrainian co-channel stations.

I'd suspect that DXers in western England (Cornwall) and on
the Iberian peninsula may have similar results ... if Senegal
is still active.
