9779 kHz 9.779 MHz USB - heard "Carlito" clearly at 2219 UTC.  Two or three stations talking casually.  Juanito and Carlito, also hiding in the 31 meter band.  Probably fishing boats or freebanders.  I'm leaning more towards fishing boats.  Mention of "El Gordito" at 2220 UTC (Gordito means "the little fat one" but could easily be a term of endearment for a fat fishing boat captain, etc).  Talking about something in kilograms.  Probably fishing catches?  Some fading.  Heard on the COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR on the CT/MA border.  Still going strong at 2221 UTC.
