Will have a look for it over this way, if it's in or near Australia I should be able to hear it, although harmonics and splatter from MW will make it hard.  Have three days off so will make an effort to tune 1670KHz, presume you used the CW mode for reception?

This has been logged to the RWW twice by a listener in Brazil.  Location is unknown, but is presumed to be a rig off the coast of Brazil.

Sorry, nothing heard across the Pacific in Australia on 1670KHz, too much crud and harmonics from MW stations, both local and DX wise, good luck with the hunt solving it... :(
