Normally I hear these guys at much lower signal levels than pirate stations.  But, for whatever reason, they're much louder tonight.  Hearing S9 level signals on 6900 kHz LSB and 6950 kHz LSB, with weaker signals on 6905 kHz LSB, 6925 kHz LSB, 6930 kHz LSB.

At least they're staying on LSB.

It doesn't do the AM guys much good.

During periods of violent solar activity, you will get better propagation into latin america at night.  I've witnessed it myself on several occasions.
