UNID 6906 AM/SSB? 0050 UTC Oct 11 / 8:50PM EDT Oct 10

UNID 6906 AM 0050 UTC / 8:50PM EDT playing music and announcements in Spanish - maybe? Very weak signal and easier to hear in USB mode...

UPDATE - this may not be a true AM signal - it has a carrier at 6906 but I only get clean audio in USB. First time finding this ever for me...

They have a carrier and USB only.

A Spanish speaking station with music.

Only S5 here in central Georgia.

Thanks to RadioRandy for his detective work!

Mystery solved. This is not a pirate - it is an authorized test of a proposed radio station in Venezuela - currently running only 50 watts!

"6906 kHz, El Tigre, Anzoátegui, Venezuela, is testing now, relaying “93.7 FM Así Suena”. Later, also plants to relay “La Voz del Tigre”, 980 kHz."

Here's a link with more info : https://www.bclnews.it/2020/10/07/news-about-the-the-venezuelan-station-r-o-c-v-6906-khz/
