HF conditions are the worst for many years. We are at the bottom of the cycle and this one has had the lowest number of sunspots since radio started. Bands below 14 MHz are still usable after dark but the higher bands are dead, apart from the occasional freak burst of propagation. That said, the big broadcast stations should be audible with their huge transmitters.
