Hotspot DXing: Venezuelan Navy Frequencies

As some of you may be aware there is a major situation developing in Venezuela. President Nicolás Maduro on Wednesday faced the gravest challenge to his authority since assuming power in 2013, as the leader of the U.S.-backed opposition claimed the legitimate mantle of leadership and President Donald Trump and other world leaders promptly recognized him as Venezuela's interim and rightful head of state. A defiant Maduro responded by announcing a break in "diplomatic and political relations" with the United States, ordering American diplomats to leave the country within 72 hours.

At this point, it is being reported that Maduro still has the support of the military. Our friend Ron Perron in MD has passed on the following military frequencies for the Venezuelan Navy.
