The 6900-7000 kHz region is busy this morning (well, morning on the East Coast of the USA)...that is, starting around 1200 UTC on August 22nd, 2017, with the following frequencies active:

6.900 MHz
6.930 MHz
6.940 MHz
6.977 MHz
6.994 MHz

[see below for more detailed logs, and see the peskies forum for more logs, these guys were also heard on several frequencies below 6900 kHz]

6900 kHz LSB - logged in its own thread, Spanish speaker bootleggers or freebanders
6900 kHz USB - first logged today, logged in its own thread, still active at 1240 UTC with several stations in roundtable net fashion
6930 kHz USB - logged in its own thread, heard after 6900 USB became active with the usual Spanish language freebander chatter
6940 kHz USB - similar to 6900 USB and 6930 USB, very informal chatter, operators referring to each other by first name, still active at 1241 UTC
6977 kHz USB - weaker than the others, and suffering from ute QRM, but still Spanish language
6994 kHz USB - suffering from severe utility QRM, but strong signals are making copy possible.
