But what time should I be looking on any of these frequencies.

When I moved to this locatin in 2003 I was able to hear the PNW AM group on
3870. But now they are down in the noise.

I used to check 14.284 in the early evening (between 4PM and 5PM PST). Again
I use to hear them a few years ago but I have not heard them in over 2
years.

I was tols one to check 7290 at noon on saturdays. I tried that and no luck.

I received a note from a ham in Alaska that told me the farther north you go
the worse things get.

On 80M I do receive the PNW RTTY net most night on 3595. What I am receiving
seems to be ground wave. That's what I would expect right now.

The PNW AM locals (Seattle) are located north of me and over some high
hills. I suspect that I am off the end of their antennas.

My antenna currently runs east to west. So my best path is N/S.
