Heard during my time off-grid way up north on Haida Gwaii (coordinates N 54.04, W 131.95) with a pretty good signal.  Here's what the logbook said:

6955 NORTH AMERICA Pirate, Dec 28 0040 - Nice signal and building towards our local sunset and now past.  SSTV image just before 00:50 UTC of a loonie tunes logo, into blues.  Another AM pirate on 6934.8.  Another SSTV image with a very red lipped woman and a T-shirt that says, 'Bone Crunching Texas' (I think) then another with a dog wearing sunglasses!  6935 cut a few minutes later, as did 6955.  Was there another digital mode on 6955 at the same time, or someone/thing else?  At 01:07 or so, another pirate on 6930U heard with a spagetti western sounding music.  Fair to good on that one.
