First tuned in at 2350 UTC frequency 6900 kHz mode LSB.

Unusually weak signals for this frequency although it is still relatively early in the evening for monitoring the peskies.  Heavy thunderstorm static crashes making listening very difficult.  

EDIT:  Tuned back in at 0110 UTC.  Listening is considerably easier now due to a slight reduction in storm QRN and a significant increase in signal strength of the received signals.  Net-like "ragchew" format, roundtable discussion involving several stations, similar to identified use of this frequency in the past.  Likely the same stations received night after night on 6900 kHz LSB and alternate frequencies (6905 LSB and 6910 LSB are both very busy at the same time).  Mention of Mexico on 0111 UTC, followed by musings on stations contacted in both the United States and Mexico, followed by a station intentionally jamming/causing QRM over another....sounds like 11 meters to me.
