Same thing happens here in the northeast when the band goes long:
W1IA, W1UJR, WA1HLR and other 'local' (within 200-300 miles) drop
drastically in strength or disappear entirely. I was surprised a
couple weeks back when then band went long early in the evening, was
thinking my receiver had a crap out. Then a station from Zero land (a
real one, not one in another call area) came booming in, confirming
that the band was indeed long.
