UNID Spanish Language 6960 kHz LSB 0000 UTC 1 August 2017
« on: August 01, 2017, 0018 UTC »
Spanish speaking freebanders freeband net 43 meters 6960 kHz LSB 6.960 MHz LSB - casual ham radio like QSO, operators exchanging signal reports and talking about equipment after one station called CQ. 

6960 kHz LSB - 6.960 MHz LSB 0000 UTC - on-going August 1st, 2017.

The band is full of two-way traffic right now, and over the past or so I've heard several usually clear frequencies active with land mobile or marine mobile communications.  Chances are the station I'm hearing on 6960 kHz LSB is land-based though.  Reminds of the guys heard on 6900 LSB - Spanish speaking traffic, freebanders.

Station calling CQ, the usual "hola hola hola!"  At 0013 UTC - 0014 UTC, another station replied to him and gave him a signal report.  Since these communications sound more like amateur radio operators operating out of band or freebanders aka outbanders, chances are they are land-based operators.  QSO continuing between two stations at 0015 UTC.  Spanish language, nice audio and easy copy at 0015 UTC.  Mention of Raul and Carlos at 0017, discussion of operators speaking Spanish vs. other languages (presuming he's comparing the amount of traffic in Portuguese or English vs. in Spanish).  Did not get a 100% copy on which operator is which name.  "No English, please" (in Spanish) heard at 0017 UTC.  Further discussion of radio operating conditions, then specific address to "Manuel" at 0018 UTC.

I've noticed the 6160 gang as well, often with really strong signals here.
