More likely it was a mix of groundwave and sky wave, if the station was local, cancelling or reinforcing signal as phase shifted on the sky wave path.

On the thought of a low dipole:

Years ago in Northern California, as an experiment, I had a VERY low

Were you cross polarized; IE was the other station running a vertical?
If so, minor fluctuations in propagation could result in major
fluctations of polarization cancellation.
