Looking-Glass, you get much MW from Asia, just north of you (well, it's about 2000 miles N)?
An AM radio Boombox DXer.
+ GE SRIII, PR-D5 & TRF on MW.
The usual Realistic culprits on SW (and a Panasonic).

No, very hard to hear any real long distance DX on MW here due to the amount of higher power Australian MW stations, tried the Grey Line.  Being close to Sydney, 127 kms away, I get very strong bleed over and harmonic crud from MW.

Best distances I get are to Western Australia (3 to 4,000kms) and across to New Zealand (2 to 3,000kms).  

Most of the Asian stations would be buried under Australia and New Zealand stations.  Would probably have better luck if I went another 100 or so kilometres west of here to escape the crud and noise from Sydney splash overs etc.

The best distance within relation to Asia would be JJY on 60KHz received here in March 2016 around 1600z for around 8,000kms, not to be repeated this year though, propagation has been lousy.
