They seem to love the 5 MHz band too so hearing those Spanish speaking voices on a nice easy to remember frequency like 5000 kHz isn't too surprising.  I've logged them on 5555.5 kHz USB, 5530 kHz USB, 5150 kHz USB, 5510 kHz USB, 5095 kHz USB and 5540 LSB in the (recent) past, I'm sure there are plenty of others.  Nice catch and thank you for logging, Skip!
