Nothing here on 6990.7 since 2230 UTC but there seems to be a very weak carrier drifting around from 6990.2 up to 6991.2.....no detectable audio here. Maybe nothing.....

I have a drifting carrier around that frequency, that's all. And it is really drifting, a lot.

Checked the websdr at this link in Brazil and heard some music and OM mentioning "Desde Argentina" about 2255 UTC http://pu2per.proxy.kiwisdr.com:8073/ Frequency was about 6991 there
2257 UTC Direct I have a very weak carrier on 6991.1 but not a trace of audio
2303 UTC Directly I have some hints of audio.....fragments....but something is there!
2309 UTC Maybe an OM talking....I'm using LSB to avoid the strong carrier on 6993
2322 UTC Definitely an OM talking! I'm using AM now
2331 UTC Music now but just too low in the noise......  :(

This is going to be a tough catch for decent audio! There is always hope!

I now have a carrier on 6990.95 kHz at 2313 UTC, with some music being heard.
At 2355, the thumping drums are cutting through the noise (reminds me of Liquid Radio) but not enough to Shazam.
