I believe I may have heard the same QRN (or another one located in Central
America) at about 435.800 when I was searching for the beacon on FO-29.  The
bird was making a S->N pass and was mostly over the Pacific and C.A.  It
didn't sound like repeater traffic, though, it was more like re-transmission
of a daytime soap opera.
