I've heard them a couple of times on my RX320 when I had the nice big loop in my attic. I seem to recall that they are indeed using a dipole, but it's been mounted deliberately too low to emphasize a more NVIS type signal (one can understand this - they want to concentrate coverage in the local area). Of course, there's still some skywave involved here. This station has been widely reported in the past.

Nice signal relaying Radio France International news, then connecting to their 1060am program with classical music.
