I'm getting some very weak audio on 6771.2 KHZ at 1300 UTC tune-in. Music slowly fading in and out of the noise floor...lady singer.

They just ran news at 1500z, and the news was provided by "Feature Story News" which seems to be this outfit: http://featurestorynews.com/

Still going at 1047z this morning.

I'm beginning to wonder if we need to move this station from Pirate to Other?

Went to Radio Ukraine website and from what I saw when I clicked on "frequencies", they are entirely web streaming now and no longer on shortwave but I could be wrong. I think a pirate is relaying the streams and mixing in some of his own content.

I think you're right, Dick.

I heard him there initially Friday evening. I figured as he was still going on Sunday it was a Memorial Day Weekend marathon, yet today he's still there.

As duration goes, he's whupped Alan Maxwell.

I think maybe we should move this topic to "HUH?" ;D

Still going at 1200z on 28 May 2014. News at the top of the hour and then back into EZ Listening style music.

I think this has been on non stop for a few days now. I can't see this being a pirate, although I am not sure what it is, perhaps a .mil contractor having fun?

I remember about 10 years ago, a station on 6250 or so would appear, rebroadcasting a local FM station. I heard them once around sunset for about 20 minutes before fading out. The FCC tracked the guy down. He was using 6250 to transmit the FM station from his house to his work shed in the back yard, or something similar. Not sure of the  wattage but it was low.

I'm wondering if this could be something similar?

That certainly seems possible. FWIW reception has not been as good the last day or two, as it previously was.

Right now, 1813z, I have a very weak signal, mostly just a carrier in fact. It was stronger earlier today.

1857z update: I have instrumental music now, but still fairly weak.

Here in Pennsylvania from 0040 to 0105 UTC on the 26th I could get a halfway decent signal, but now I can only get a weak carrier.
