6979 kHz USB vs. 6977 kHz USB 2155 UTC 14 Jan 2019

Via Westminster, MD SDR

6979 kHz USB - good signals, Spanish speaking freebanders - heavy use of GAMBIO
6977 kHz USB - weaker signals, but also in Spanish (a heavily used freebander frequency, logged lots in the past)

("where with my mom, over?" is the literal translation) at 2157 UTC.  "but of course, over" also at 2157 UTC.  Hearing another conversation in the background (also on 6979 kHz USB).  There might be three QSOs going on at once on one frequency at this point...
