Peskies / 12250 kHz USB Spanish Language 1755 UTC 23 Jan 2019
« on: January 23, 2019, 1758 UTC »
12250 kHz 12.250 MHz Spanish language 12250 UTC SS OMs - two OMs talking about general topics, at 1757, mentioned "another frequency" - talking about alternate frequency or frequency for nighttime use.  Likely the same pescadores heard on the 4-7 MHz bands during the evening and at night are using the higher frequencies during the day.  Good signals early afternoon US East Coast time via COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR on the CT/MA border.

SHARES North on 6765 kHz USB 6.765 MHz USB
SHARES Northeast on 6845 kHz USB 6.845 MHz USB

FEMA emergency management coordination weekly net

Freestate 40 asking NCS964 for readback confirmation at 1740 UTC - "net count is now figures one seven (17) - assume net control and pass it to NCS327 at 1750 (SHARES Regional Coordination Net Northeast frequency ID for 6845 USB at 1741 UTC).  Good copy locally, on the Westminster, MD SDR and the CT/MA border SDR.


Standard weekly net operating procedures, check-ins to the net, net control transferred to another station, process repeated, relays requested, etc.  Nets active on 6765 USB and 6845 USB.  Better signals on 6845 USB but 6765 USB traffic is completely readable.

NNO5RJ net control for SHARES North (6765 USB) at 1745 UTC - general call for any station, any region, any area, then request for relays.  NNE5PY and NCSxxx stations heard on frequency.

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.

6950 kHz 6.950 MHz - OM talking

88! 88! 22! several two digit numbers heard 2134 UTC and 2135 UTC.  "In the truck there's [unintelligible]" - several stations talking at once.  Not sure if these are marine stations (pescadores or traffickers) or land-based stations.  One OM is talking very fast (same guy that's reading the numbers rapidly).

Peskies / 6090 kHz USB Pescadores En Espanol 2217 UTC 18 Jan 2019
« on: January 18, 2019, 2219 UTC »
Pescadores hiding in the 49 meter shortwave broadcast band.  I know this frequency has been logged previously in use by Gloucester, MA fishing fleets but this time its Latin Americans.  Standard pescadore fishing fleet fishing boat communications type chatter.  I don't blame them either, the 6 MHz marine band is jam-packed with other users right now as is 43 meters.

6666.6 kHz and 6670 kHz USB both active (along with other frequencies in the 6-7 MHz region), but 6666.6 USB is very active.  Que pasa, Antonio, gambio!.  OM whistling into mic on 6666.6 kHz USB at 2210 UTC.

Peskies / Pescadores on 5000 kHz USB (with WWV!) 2155 UTC 18 Jan 2019
« on: January 18, 2019, 2158 UTC »
They're back on 5000 kHz USB 5.000 MHz USB mode with WWV clicking away underneath them.  Solid signals again this evening. 

248
12225 kHz 12.225 MHz LSB voice SS Spanish language, within the 11975 kHz to 12330 kHz fixed/mobile allocation, although most of us know that a lot of broadcast stations hang out in the lower part of that range.  12 MHz is also a marine allocation, but these guys aren't in the marine band just yet.

Net ended (stations said good bye to each other) around 1503 UTC and frequency is now clear.

Received via COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR on the CT/MA border.

Lots of Spanish voices in the 10 MHz region this morning.  Hearing salty sailor talk on 10202 kHz USB, as well as 10222.2 kHz USB, 10250 kHz USB, 10205 kHz USB...probably others.

Received via COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR on the CT/MA border.  Presumed pescadores going by the operating style, frequency, mode and accent of Spanish language spoken.

9555.5 kHz USB 9.555.5 MHz USB Spanish Language SS OMs within the 31 meter shortwave broadcast band.  SIO 222 or so.  Heavy use of proper radio procedures, likely fishermen, discussing catch amounts and plans tomorrow.  Several numbers heard, two digits usually.  "its all good" and general chit-chat, presumed pescadores.

Hearing Spanish language chatter on 9225 kHz 9.225 MHz USB and 9198 kHz 9.198 MHz LSB mode (one of the stations sounds better on 9197.9 kHz) this morning via the COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR.  This matches with the usage of the 8-10 MHz (and higher) frequencies during the day and the 4-6 MHz frequencies at night.

Peskies / 9147 kHz USB Pescadores? 1430 UTC 18 Jan 2019
« on: January 18, 2019, 1434 UTC »
Via COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR, weak voice traffic heard on QRG 9147 kHz 9.147 MHz USB mode.  Presumed fishing fleet communications outside the legal HF marine bands.  Spanish language.  Several other frequencies in the 8-10 MHz region also active.  OM whistling into mic at 1434 UTC.

Peskies / 6777 kHz USB UNID Spanish Language 1415 UTC 18 Jan 2019
« on: January 18, 2019, 1418 UTC »
Diego and another unknown OM chatting away on 6777 kHz, the OM talking to Diego sounds better closer to 6777.1 kHz.  Not sure who's off frequency, given the randomness of the freebanders.  Diego is on 6777.0 kHz.  Stumbled upon this QSO while listening to Old Time Radio on 6770 kHz AM. 

6777.7 kHz has been logged previously. 

Receiver is the COMMSIGMA Sigma KiwiSDR on the CT/MA border.

Peskies / 6925 LSB and 6900 LSB already active 2125 UTC 17 Jan 2019
« on: January 17, 2019, 2127 UTC »
Both the pescadore (Portuguese speaking) watering hole on 6925 kHz LSB and the freebanders on 43 meters watering hole (Spanish speaking) are busy as I turn the VFO and check the Westminster, MD KiwiSDR.  Good signals on 6925 LSB with Portuguese chatter, the usual suspects. 


255
Spanish language chatter noted on 8986 kHz USB, 9000 kHz USB, 9005 kHz USB and 9033 kHz USB - this is all with a cursory glance at the band on the COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR located on the CT/MA border.  I'm assuming there's a lot more in the 8-9 MHz region and elsewhere. 

Tuned in at 2115 UTC
