6.930 MHz LSB 6930 kHz LSB fishing fleets pescadores peskies 6930 LSB

These guys have been chatting for hours and hours.  It's now 0430 UTC and I first noticed them around 0000 UTC.  Portuguese, likely fishing fleets with stations talking over each other and single operators talking nonstop for 5-10 minutes at once.  Even though the band is mostly quiet (but still full of static crashes, etc) and the Spanish-speaking nets on 6900 kHz LSB and 6905 kHz LSB are long gone...even 6925 kHz LSB is quiet...this frequency remains very busy.
