Group or "net" of Italian-speaking stations taking turns talking.  Several mentions of "unit 30" or "station 30", "number 6" and other identifiers.  More professional sounding operating procedures compared to most pescadore / freebander traffic Interspersed between voice transmissions is some sort of short "rushing sound" data burst.  Not sure if this is related to these guys or if its another signal on the same (or on a nearby) frequency. 

Checked several remote SDRs and the stations on 6996 kHz USB are more or less the same strength and readability up and down the US east coast. 

Frequency still active when I tuned away at 1055 UTC. 
U.S. East Coast, various HF/VHF/UHF radios/scanners/receivers
