7499 kHz 7.499 MHz.  UNID SSB radio net in Spanish language, presumed freebanders or outbanders.  Like the other stations heard in the 41 meter band, this QSO is squeezed between strong shortwave broadcast signals.  WBCQ is on 7490 kHz not too far away.  Interesting accent of Spanish, maybe South American.  Heard several curse words, long pauses between transmissions, which is atypical of these types of nets.  Maybe I'm not hearing part of the QSO. 

2158 UTC - a third (maybe?) station joined the "net", and he is transmitting a weak, but noticeable carrier with LSB, the other stations are just using SSB (no carrier).  He's also making heavy use of the pro-word "cambio" (sounds like "gambio" to English speakers, means "over" or "back to you").  General chit-chat continues going into the 2200 UTC hour...
