Forgot to log this earlier, heard during the day.  11900 kHz is almost right in the middle of the 25 meter shortwave broadcast band (officially 11650 kHz - 11975 kHz, de facto its more like 11600 kHz - 12200 kHz considering the number of legal/licensed broadcasters that operate above and/or below those limits).  However, these guys were operating on an empty frequency (but quite close to the super flamethrower signal from WRMI on 11825 kHz) and using USB mode.  Spanish language, similar conversational topics as I run into in the 6700-7000 kHz and 25615-28000 kHz ranges.  Sounded like two, possibly three operators having a casual conversation.  SIO 333 at the very best.

Very interesting frequency choice.  Seemed like land-based transmissions given the fact that they were mentioning Mexican cities (although that doesn't rule out marine-based transmissions talking about things going on on land).
