I don't pick up ched at night in Kelowna, I suppose it's just blind luck which stations you get at night? As I said before 1260 didn't come in at night in Alberta and 15 hours away it's clear as a bell for the most part.

I do recall getting stations from as far as Hawaii and what I think was the Phillipines in the past.
It's not so much blind luck but it's based on the signal bouncing off the atmosphere at night and then coming back down in a certain location. In Edmonton at night we would get Team 1040 and Team 1410 and likewise, Vancouver does get higher frequency Edmonton stations. Calgary gets a lot of Seattle stations.
