I have two (temporary) conclusions from this :
- On the morning perhaps the path is not fully SP or LP and usually NA 
stations are bearing to JA, not me, making things harder to understand.
- Around 1 meter under my antenna I have a roof which frame is in metal. 
Length is around 10m... If heading 330°the main dimension is parallel to the 
antenna. Heading 015° perhaps the frame act as a parasitic element and 
modify the radiation pattern...>>>>>>

Sounds like either one of your thoughts, or perhaps both of your thoughts, 
are reasonable conclusions.
