I thought it was a pirate broadcaster tuning up...carrier keying on and off and somebody clearly tuning up on 6940.0 kHz...didn't notice any modulation at that point however.  Then the carrier disappears, another key or two for a few seconds, then several HOLA HOLA HOLA transmissions on 6940 USB mode.  Then silence. 

6940 kHz 6.940 MHz Spanish language presumed freebander or outbander using 43 meter band frequencies for two-way SSB QSOs....or maybe just testing his radio out of band?   8)
