Here are two reports that will give you a lot of international AM broadcast reception information relevant to eastern USA and Canada.
(Prince Edward Island DXpedition)
(Cape Cod, MA)

Note that, unlike a lot of stuff out there on the web, these are based on RECENT receptions.

Old reports invariably list a lot of no-longer-active stations such as former blowtorches Norway 1314, Sweden 1179, Switzerland 765, et al.

Though 160m may not be as fussy, the observation of these AM BC signals indicate that strengths drop like a rock as you travel inland. Smelling salt air and hearing seagulls seems a near prerequisite to strong DX signals below 1.7 MHz.
