0015UTC - Hearing one Spanish speaking freebander on 6858.50  kHz. Good S7 signal into WNY. I can't hear the station he is speaking too.
0027 UTC - Still conversing with another station, signal holding at S7.

Thanks for catching this one, Traveling Wave!  Another example of the pescadores or freebanders using "offset" or point five frequencies.  I've logged 6771.5 kHz, 6772.5 kHz, 6936.5 kHz and 6956.5 kHz and there's probably others.  6858.5 kHz is another example of an easy to remember frequency (like the log for 15151.5 kHz, 6969.6 kHz, etc) Lots of repeating digits makes it easy to remember.
