Thanks to Ray Lalleu for the identification.

This is a list I have compiled based on loggings here on the HFU. It shows all the identified North American shortwave pirates heard in the month of August 2022. Note that many stations use multiple names so determining the amount of actual transmitters in use is impossible. Some stations are also active so infrequently that they may not have been logged in August but may broadcast in the future. Stations are listed alphabetically and show the station name followed by the number of loggings in August 2022. This time I have also counted the amount of UNID stations.

S5 with the VA7AV KiwiSDR in British Columbia, Canada.

0307 UTC-Religious talk
0341 UTC-Strange ending, postal address given then closing down message and off with no music

Exact frequency is 6016.97 kHz. S9 with the Bonaire, Caribbean Netherlands KiwiSDR. Weak S7 with the W3HFU KiwiSDR.

2223 UTC-Male announcer talking in Spanish
2229 UTC-Must be a sports program, I think there was a “goooooooooooooooooooooooaaaal”
2302 UTC-Mention of Colombia then national anthem
2304 UTC-Now back to talking in Spanish
2306 UTC-Sounds like advertisements

Strange program for this station, usually Organización Radial El Prado only plays music. Their frequency is also usually closer to 6017.2 kHz. However, I am unaware of any other stations on 6017v kHz so it must be them. Checking various KiwiSDR’s it seems Colombia is a likely source. Any ideas are appreciated.

S7 with the KiwiSDR in San Carlos, Chile. Broadcast announced on the RCW Facebook page.

1830 UTC-Talk in Spanish, relay of the Chilean elections

« on: September 02, 2022, 2247 UTC »
S9+10 with the PY2GN KiwiSDR in São Paulo, Brazil. Possibly a ham testing but a very long time to be transmitting and no call signs heard.

2235 UTC-Repeating “Hello hello hello olá olá olá” and Portuguese numbers
2245 UTC-Still going doing the same thing
2254 UTC-Sounds like he has walked away with the mic still open, sounds like putting coins in a vending machine?

Peskies / Weird Brazilian Peskies 6970 LSB 2050 UTC 2 Sep 2022
« on: September 02, 2022, 2103 UTC »
I first heard this today around 1600 UTC with the PY2GN KiwiSDR in São Paulo, Brazil. First I heard a guy talking to himself and playing music and sound effects. I have just tuned in again at 2050 UTC and I hear what sounds like the citizens band. Lots of stations calling over top of each other and some using echo/reverb. Currently recording and I will post the recording. I have never heard Peskies behave like this, their nets are usually fairly organized. Strong signals, loudest station is S9+35. Very wide SSB audio.

« on: September 01, 2022, 1645 UTC »
S5 with the PY2-82502 KiwiSDR in Brazil. Unstable carrier near 6222.36 kHz and messy modulation.

1639 UTC-Talk between two male announcers, maybe a relay of a legal station?
1646 UTC-Music, went back to talk before I could Shazam it
1700 UTC-ID probably given, but I didn’t hear it
1701 UTC-Music

Exact frequency is 9925.83 kHz. Weak S5 with the PY2-81502 KiwiSDR in Brazil. Tentative ID based on the list by Daniel Wyllyans.

1636 UTC-Music, very weak
1646 UTC-It’ll Be A Long Time by The Offspring

Exact frequency is 9289.87 kHz. S5 with the PY2-81502 KiwiSDR in Brazil.

1611 UTC-Unknown Instrumental Music
1612 UTC-Station ID jingle, Radio Casa?
