Ideally for a given antenna setup, your best reception results will occur in the evening during anticyclonic conditions (stable high pressure) where tropospheric ducting occurs.

In terms of the “waypoints”, they are usually mandatory reporting points, where an aircraft must estimate an ETA and report at that spot, useful when there is no radar coverage or there has been a failure and procedural control is in place. Not sure how much procedural control is done these days with ADSB and other technologies augmenting radar.
