Hmmmm....I'm wondering if this might be RNZI on their Saturday Broadcast schedule, beaming to us at 35 degrees.  If so, first time I've picked them up in weeks.  From 1600-1620z there was a YL talking about religious issues, she sounded like a Kiwi.  Programming is more formal than pirate.
Although, no 1630z ID

At 1647 I am hearing what sounds like Congressional hearings on ICANN.

49 meters direct from NZ at noon on the East Coast would likely require the assistance of Q.  ;D
