6970 khz AM station
« on: June 30, 2020, 0019 UTC »
Heard at 0005 GMT on 6790 khz with English speaking male and female announcer with various news topics with mention of Vancouver at one point. Could be CBC relay? Harmonic? Unusual  frequency for a SWBC station.

I think what you heard was a pirate relay that was noted under "Shortwave Pirate" topics.  By the way, welcome to the board.
