I have posted results here in the past when I've taken my Palstar R30 out to the park and laid around 400' of wire on the ground. Not long enough to be a beverage but long enough to get receive lobes from both the end of the wire and also off the sides.

On MW in the daytime I was able to listen to WHAS out of Louisville, Ky. Clear channel Chicago stations would come in 10 over 9 here in southeast Michigan.

On LW the NBD's really come popping in, and on HF listening to air comms on 8918khz out of New York
would come in easily with an S4 reading. That might not sound great but there is a zero noise floor so the audio just pops right out.
Even on 20 meters an S2 reading is a very listenable signal.
