Strong Spanish language traffic on another interesting frequency.  6 5 4 3 2...now that's easy to remember.  Just like 6777.7 kHz or 6888 kHz, etc.  6543.2 kHz is another case of fishing fleets using HF aircraft bands (in this case, the 6 MHz aeronautical band 6525-6765 kHz), not to mention their use of LSB instead of USB. 

Two OMs talking rapidly with long breaks of silence.  Appears to only be two stations (as opposed to many peskie loggings, where there's 3+ stations, often with several stations transmitting at once. 

I tuned away at 0647 UTC and the frequency was clear when I tuned away.
