2251 6972.95 Carrier and perhaps traces of audio. As per the Radio Pirana operator, this is a Latin American pirate they call "Lupo". I think I'll be sitting on this frequency for a while  ;D
2256 Now I am hearing music
2321 Still hearing music.

I've been seeing that one and one around 6929.850 for the last hour or so. The one around 6930'is getting stronger

That's interesting, Chris. I've heard a weak station there on and off for years. I always put it down to a mixing problem due to a number of MW sticks in close proximity to my house? 23:00 is roughly the time I've heard around the equinoxes.

Yes, it is very interesting. I think some of our "bumps in the night" are actually distant pirates. 20 to 50 watts from South America means we usually don't get much more than a carrier and traces of audio.
