Hearing Spanish speaking traffic on 6915 kHz LSB / 6.915 MHz LSB with mild fading and moderate storm crashes lightning static QRN.  Sounds like at least two, maybe three stations having a "roundtable" type QSO.  It appears that 6900 kHz is also active to its possible that these stations QSYed from 6900.  Several mentions of "barco" (Spanish for "boat") at 0112 and 0113 UTC

At 0113 UTC, a new, considerably stronger station, checked into the net.  Very similar operating procedures to the usual nets heard on 6895 kHz, 6900 kHz, 6905 kHz, etc.  5 kHz step matches up with Spanish speaking SS freebanders or outbanders that are also heard on the 11 meter band.  

At 0115 UTC, this new, UNID station is still holding a monopoly on the frequency.  Talking about people recording the frequency (???) perhaps he's making a reference to people logging activity on these frequencies.  A very strong data burst obliterated the voice traffic for about 3 seconds at 0116 UTC.   Continued discussion of logging traffic on 11 meters and other frequency bands.  A comment about "amateur radio bands".  Likely the same operators that are usually heard on 6900 kHz LSB.
