Old blues at 0142 UTC on 6950.  Good signal, but hammered by noise and static.  Listening at Cappahayden Newfoundland.

Being heard in Cappahayden, Newfoundland at 2314 UTC. Odd sounding electronic stuff. Very noisy here, and now a haunting vocal.

Thanks, there are at least three others of these tonight, but the first one almost seemed like a program, not a phone call.

From time to time I hear what seem to be marine communications in Spanish in the lower end of the 6900-7000 band.  But this one is surprisingly good in western New York, seems like a speech or commentary, or maybe a phone call? Could be a program? Does not seem to be a two-way conversation, though maybe two men at the same microphone? Anyone know what this might be? I'm not a good judge of Spanish accents, but might hazard a guess that this is Castillian Spanish. 

Very strong signal in western NY on 6950u
