This was the UNID South American pirate, which has been noted on 6934.78 AM.

Heard here from 0035 UTC on the SDR recording. First with some test tones, then music at 0059.
Off at 0121. Generally an SIO 222.

Wow...that signal has been logged for many months! I don't frequent the Latin forum.

During the transmission I tried a few eastern US SDRs- they didn't have it at all or worse than I had it in Colorado. If I see it again maybe I will try a west coast SDR.

Thanks for the follow up.
