Interesting. It was a legit broadcaster in Chile on 6955 that drove all the Stateside pirates down to 6925 in '01. Better start digging out those old crystals, guys.

This one will present an interesting DX target for us.  This is from their Facebook page:

RCW Radio Company Worldwide ... The Chilean international is a FREE station ... born of constant and unfortunate demise of shortwave broadcasters whose mission is to keep Chile in the HF bands and disseminate cultural, informational programming and musical. RCW is, so far, the only station in the country issuing Shortwave after the close of the Issuer Calera de Tango Center.
In creating RCW undeniably recognize that was inspired by the old Dutch radio RNW, noticing in our programming and corporate figure his clear influence.
Our Shortwave broadcasting center of the City of San Francisco in Chile currently has a power of 45 Watts AM (0,045 KW) with a dipole antenna G5RV inverted V type, emitting at frequencies of 6,925 or 7,550 kilohertz. In our channels are Internet and LISTEN2MYRADIO - USTREAM.
RCW is small among small shortwave stations but is proud to be a radio that somehow helps to keep alive this important but underrated form of broadcasting. GREETINGS FROM SAN FRANCISCO IN CHILE ... 73!

It looks like it would make a nice greyline target at certain times of the year.
