6985 USB vs. 6990 LSB vs. 6990 USB 2320 UTC 5 Nov 2018

43 meter band busy with lots of the usual suspects, the region just below the bottom edge of 40 meters 7000.0 kHz is an active region for two-way SSB radio chatter of unknown origin.

6985 kHz USB - weak voice heard, unable to positively ID language, presumably Spanish or Portuguese
6990 kHz LSB - OM and YL heard talking to each other, another QSO down in the noise underneath it (Spanish language)
6990 kHz USB - strong Spanish speaking stations coming in, activity on 6990 LSB and 6990 USB at the same time

This has been noted on another common frequency, 6900 kHz...
