LSB mode

Probably the strongest Spanish, Portuguse or Italian language station heard so far today...hearing very strong Spanish language chatter on 6990 LSB at 2325 UTC

2328 UTC - Ramon talking to another, currently UNID station...very very strong S9 to S9+20db on peaks with strong punchy SSB audio.  
2329 UTC - UNID station talking rapidly, but sounds like freebanders.  These guys are just really loud, references to "13 meters"
2330 UTC - UNID station now appears to be correcting Ramon...unfortunately they're talking just a little too quickly for me to really get a grasp on what they're talking about
2333 UTC - several references to 'Ramon' and cities in Venezuela, then Venezuela mentioned directly
2334 UTC - suffering increasing interference from 6985 kHz USB, mention of shopping at the supermarket (grocery store)
2335 UTC - after listening for a bit, I know these guys are probably not from North America (going by accents)
2336 UTC - "listen, Ramon" (stronger station) - weaker station is probably Ramon
