Preliminary Mid day AM station count-
Tecsun PL-310ET=14 ETM search
SONY ICF-P26=31 understandable stations
I wondered what would happen if I manually went through AM on the Tecsun, so did and got an understandable station count of 13.
All three tests between 12:30 and 12:50 PM local time. [midday]
Looks promising for the SONY.
