6520 kHz AM, can hear bits and pieces of audio on the frequency...but the North Korean jamming of this radio station is very effective.  Receiver is the COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR on the CT/MA border.

6.520 MHz AM mode, heavily jammed by North Korea shortwave broadcast station Voice Of The People

Hearing a couple different QSOs in the 6200-6525 kHz marine range.  Receiver is the COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR on the CT/MA border

6205 kHz AM - weak music heard, AM carrier, presumed Laser Hot Hits European pirate - 49 meter band
6215 kHz USB - weak SSB voice heard, this is the 6 MHz calling distress frequency (frequently used by South American fishing fleets)
6230 kHz USB - marine weather
6233 kHz USB - two OMs chatting in Spanish, presumed pescadores (good signals)
6238 kHz USB - Portuguese language, weak, presumed pescadores or fishing boats
6246 kHz USB - mention of Venezuela (Spanish langauge)
6292 kHz USB - Spanish language chatter, heavy fading
6300 kHz USB - UNID language, frequently logged activity on this frequency
6303 kHz USB - UNID language, weak signals (previously logged)
6363 kHz USB - Spanish language, presumed pescadores
6400 kHz USB - UNID language, mixing with Pyongyang North Korean SWBC signal on 6400 AM
6445 kHz LSB - Spanish language, OM and YL talking - some fading
6501 kHz USB - US Coast Guard marine weather forecast S9+30db on peaks (some overmodulation, very strong)

This is a five minute "drive by" picture of the band

via the COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR On the CT/MA border, tuned in at 2139 UTC. 

Frequency / QRG :   6400 kHz 6.400 MHz 6.4 MHz

Use by Pyongyang Broadcasting Station North Korea DPRK in AM mode (6400 kHz AM), however I am hearing fishing fleet comms, I believe in Portuguese (maybe not?) on 6400 USB mode.  Weak carrier on 6400 kHz presumed to be Pyongyang while the pescadores chat away on 6400 USB. 

Peskies / 6920 kHz USB vs. 6925 kHz LSB 2205 UTC 29 Jan 2019

Strong pescadore traffic on 6925 kHz LSB mixing in with an on-going QSO on 6920 kHz USB. Combine that with Mix Radio International on 6925 kHz (AM mode) and itís pretty messy.

Carrier on 6925.09 or so, hearing bits and pieces of modulation with some QRM from the pescadores on 6925 kHz LSB and 6920 kHz USB.

6516 kHz USB 6.516 MHz USB

OM talking about wind conditions, several f-bombs heard, salty language.  Maybe yachtmen or sailors?  SIO 444 on one of the stations...lots of QRM from a nearby data signal on 6518 kHz

"good luck in your travels" and "you won't be on the next case" at 2150 UTC
OM talking about weather conditions for sailing, "its gonna be nice" and then "its not gonna be nice" - sounds like one side of a QSO or telephone call, possibly a half-duplex split frequency QSO....could be fishermen - can only hear one side of the QSO

2155 UTC - more fuckin' this and fuckin' that - language and operating procedure reminds me of the Gloucestermen previously heard on 6212 USB, 6095 USB and 69xx frequencies?

6516 kHz is ITU channel 606, paired with HF-SSB calling/distress frequency 6215 kHz.

6 MHz marine band frequencies are busy via COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR on the CT/MA border.  Both frequencies 6303 kHz USB and 6310 kHz USB are going nearly non-stop.  Similar to nearby frequencies 6300 kHz USB, 6292 kHz USB, 6282 kHz USB and several others (for example, 6970 kHz LSB, but that's not in the marine band).

No idea what language this is, tuned both frequencies starting at 2145 UTC on January 29th, 2019

6303 kHz 6.303 MHz
6310 kHz 6.310 MHz

Peskies / 6300 kHz USB UNID Language 2140 UTC 29 Jan 2019

The 6-7 MHz band is alive with all sorts of SSB QSOs, lots of them in unknown language.  Not sure what I'm hearing on 6300 kHz USB - 6.300 MHz USB, but its not English and doesn't sound like a Latin-based language.  Maybe I'm wrong...lots of QRM at the moment.  Receiving via the COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR...so, maybe, just like last time, I'm hearing two QSOs at once on the same frequency.  6300 kHz is a popular one.

Peskies / 6925 LSB and 6927 USB 2130 UTC 29 Jan 2019
« on: January 29, 2019, 2135 UTC »
6925 kHz LSB active with Portuguese pescadore chatter, as is 6927 kHz USB.  Seems like 6925 kHz AM wouldn't be too good of a choice for a pirate at the moment

Peskies / 15838.8 kHz USB 1818 UTC 26 Jan 2019 UNID Net in Spanish

Tail end of a pescadore-like QSO in Spanish, seems like I caught the very end of it.  Via the Westminster, MD KiwiSDR.  A new frequency for me.  Tuned to 15839 kHz 15.839 MHz at first, but these guys were using 15.838.8 USB (another easy-to-remember-frequency!).

UNID net, presumed prescadores or outbanders/freebanders.  SS OM Spanish language.

AM activity on the 11 meter band.

26985 - CB channel 3 - hearing two OMs talking, possibly locals
27025 - CB channel 6 - The Superbowl, lots of stations, but rapid fading, possibly indicating a sporadic-E opening
27085 - CB channel 11 - hearing a couple stations from the southern US working DX
27115 - CB channel 13 - OMs talking about traffic conditions, presumed truckers (weak)
27185 - CB channel 19 - near constant carrier(s) on frequency, several conversations at once
27255 - CB channel 23 - FSK data bursts, various signal strengths
27285 - CB channel 28 - hearing stations with southern accents, lots of fading

Carrier and weak music heard on 6934.9 kHz presumed AD149 radio out of South America

Very strong Link-11 (DSB) centered on 6982 kHz (covering 6979 kHz to 6985 kHz).  Luckily the UNID net on 6985 kHz is on 6985 USB.  Spanish language.  There's another wobbling data signal on 6987.3 kHz or 6987.2 kHz (6987 kHz if you're tuned in USB mode).

Lots of QRM in the little chunk of spectrum just below the bottom edge of 40 meters 7 MHz band. 

6999 kHz USB, 6998 kHz USB and 7000 kHz LSB are all active at once.  Not to mention the amateur radio operators transmitting CQ on 7000.1 kHz and 7000.2 kHz, going by the signal strength, these ham operators are at least attempting to jam these intruders off of 40 meters.  Unfortunately it doesn't seem to be working. 

6999 kHz USB 6.999 MHz USB - YL and OM talking, can't really make out the language because there's so much QRM.  6998 USB is also active and there's some weak signals on 7000 kHz LSB on top of that.  Naturally, the CW signals are owning the frequency, making it impossible for me to make anything out.  The 6999 USB stations don't seem to mind though.

Heard via the Westminster, MD KiwiSDR.

SHARES West 14402 kHz USB 14.402 USB

NF11CH, AAR0FR, NCS012 several other stations checking into net, good signals on the COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR.
