These are ops operating out of band who may carry on conversations in most commonly Spanish, but Portuguese is not unusual.  Collectively they are called  pescs.  At times, music or commercial station relays may also be heard.  They may operate anywhere in the 43 meter funny band, but the frequencies of 6900L, 6925L, 6933L, and 6945L are generally pretty busy in the evenings.

I barely hear male voices and occasional music under megatons of static left over from violent storms that hit Chicagoland earlier today.

Joe, thanks for the info.  I've heard similar traffic on 6900 and 6905 early evenings in Southern California that sounded like the Spanish "freebanders" from 11 meters.  Does the "pescs" name originate from "pescadero", Spanish for fisherman?

I do believe that is the case.
