First time I hear this. Says it is a test transmission from Argentina to Argentina and the world.
Good modulation. SIO 343

2321 UTC I have a weak carrier on 6991 here but no detectable audio yet
2330 UTC I can tell something is there but it is deep in the noise.
2346 UTC Carrier seems to have drifted down to 6990.8 khz
Thanks for the DX tip Radio Pirana International!  :)

Tina Turner now. Is not very strong. Radio Lupo is stronger but that can have to do about the location.
