Yes, it's usually a lady in Spanish, comes in quite strong here in eastern Australia via the Grey Line, often 10dB over if conditions are good.  Nice catch Flexoman!

Funny thing is, that you guys copy it stronger than i, and TX is only ~100 miles away from here. Got kinda "over-jumped" i guess.

22:10z - 22:18z (off)
YL op,  Volmet / WX report on 8952 USB, muffly and lowish but readable.

23:27z Up agn, now with interference from 8950 ss OMs, and yes the YL speaks spanish.
