Hearing Spanish voices on 5555.5 kHz - yes, another super easy to remember frequency, just like 6666.6 kHz or 6777.7 kHz etc etc. 

Typical pescadore like chatter, good signals with some very weak QRM from what seems to be 5557 kHz (possibly another peskie net?) or something else way down in the noise.  Listening on COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR remote receiver on the CT/MA border.

I heard voices in Spanish last night (sorry, didn't log) in USB on 5555 kHz (local receiver with wire), hadn't seen your post yet.  Will monitor freq and see if they show up again. My Spanish is slowly improving listening to these guys and the Mexican amateurs on 80 meters, who are often more interesting than the saloon jamming activity.
