9373 kHz 9.373 MHz LSB (previously logged in USB mode on this same frequency earlier this month.

Weak Spanish language chatter heard within the internationally allocated 31 meter shortwave broadcast band, this practice is actually more common than some people would think.  8-10 MHz is littered with Spanish language chatter (presumed fishing boats, fishing fleets, the infamous pescadores), 8000 kHz to 8815 kHz is a legal maritime band but above that...well, you've heard the story before.
