8989 kHz USB Spanish Language 2111 12 Dec 2018
« on: December 12, 2018, 2213 UTC »
I was tuning around the band after I noted activity on 6739 kHz, so I switched up to 8992 and noticed these guys.  I have logged 8989 kHz USB before, with similar sounding traffic.  Spanish speakers, although this time I hear more than one station.  I think they're talking about fishing, heard a couple mentions of "el barco" (the ship or the boat).  QRM from another QSO on 8990 kHz (probably another group of fishing boats...)
