Glenn, you are right, thanks for your exact measurements, no doubt anymore on my side. I found it last night too (Sun/Mon). The signal was noticeably better than on Saturday. The talking station was the new Colombian with its probably popular programs “Lectures of the History of Colombia” and “A Horse and a Boy”. All in Spanish, of course. There was a carrier on the lower frequency as well (some 25Hz below), but no modulation at 2330. The similar (or repeated) lectures were heard in the morning when the program ended at 0809 without any announcement and only a carrier remained on the frequency. I was not observing this part from this location in the middle of Europe (no propagation from LA anymore at that time), I was on the KiwiSDR in Bonaire where the signal was very good (max S9+10dB).
It seems they have no ToH IDs, only time announcements heard between the programs (UTC -4h). The official time in Colombia is UTC -5h.

Manuel, thanks for your info. Last night I heard two stations on 4940kHz
between 2330-0045UTC (Sep12/13). Both with very weak signals here in the
middle of Europe. One of them had an endless religious talk by a man in
Spanish, I supposed it was Radio San Antonio from Peru (but not closing at
2400 as listed). The second station was mostly playing music, no ann heard.
A frequency difference between the stations was about 20Hz, the talking
station was the higher one. I gave it up at 0045, signals were getting
weaker and weaker as it usually happens in this area after some peak
conditions between ...2300-2400... (to South America).

COLOMBIA (presumed), 4940, new station, 0450-0635, 13-09, Spanish,
religious comments, Colombian song, more religious comments. The same
formant and same announcers as La Voz de tu Conciencia or Alcaravan
Radio, it seems that relaying its programs, 1 hour 25 minutes non stop
Martin Stendal sermon, film advertisement "Ahora, la película La Montaña
disponible totalmente gratis, lamontañacolombia.com", "El Caballo y su
Muchacho". Curiously, at 0504 UTC they announced the time "La 1 y 4
minutos", when in Colombia it was 0 hours 4 minutes. No identification
heard. Very weak here in Reinante, 15321, fair to good via SDR Kiwi
remote receiver in Bonaire.
