Very good signals at 2230 UTC - 2231 UTC, heard mentions of Beyonce, OM and YL chatting.  OM has a very good signal, SIO 444 easily and was pushing S8-S9 at tune in.  Poor frequency choice since they're in the middle of the busy 6 MHz aeronautical on-route band 6525 kHz to 6685 kHz but what do they care?  cf. 6666.6 kHz and other frequencies, etc.  YL's signal is much weaker, almost unreadable.  OM mentioned Venezuela and an unidentifiable word/place at 2234 UTC.  2234 UTC....- the usual "buenas tardes!" and compliments on signal strength, etc. then the frequency went quiet.  Sounds like the QSO ended.
