OK, here's a weird one for ya.  Pulled it in off the Hampton Bays, NY SDR.  Spanish-language music on 600 AM.....sounded like they were singing the same thing over and over, LOL. 

The station in question was overrunning WICC 600 (Bridgeport, CT).  I can't find any Spanish-language station in the area on that frequency....possible pirate, maybe? Little help?

If you can hear it, or next time you hear it, see of you can use a ambc portable to null it out, then you can kinda tell what azimuth the station is from you. I'd say use tdoa on it, but the whole country has stations on 600kc.

Maybe WYEL  Mayaguez, Puerto Rico (which repeats WKAQ 580 am San Juan)?  The signal would be bouncing in the Atlantic before hitting Long Island.
