Peskies / 6810 kHz USB "BUENO BUENO BUENO" 2141 UTC 14 Jan 2019
« on: January 14, 2019, 2144 UTC »
6810 kHz USB 6.810 MHz USB - very rapid talking, one station is SIO 555 pushing 10db over S9, the other is consistent with most other pescadores and freebanders.  "son bueno, gambio!" etc etc - signal reports?  that, or something else is very good.  OM laughing hysterically at 2142 UTC. 

"Correct, correct" and lots of other replies in the affirmative heard.  Several other QSOs above and below 6800 kHz or so showing up on the waterfall right now (2143 UTC).  These guys are likely just freebanders but one of them has a killer signal.  SS OMs Spanish speaking signals via COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR on the CT/MA border.

Old Time Radio pirate OTR 6.770 MHz 6770 kHz AM, heard nearly daily around this time on the COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR located on the CT/MA border.  Strong carrier noted on the waterfall with some static crashes.  S8-S9 carrier.

YL - "I heard about it on the radio, look at this John"
YL - "the cruelest sport known to mankind" talking about throwing people to the lions.  OM and YL having a conversation - "you've got tears in your eyes" at 2138 UTC.  Pretty good copy with some ute QRM.  Bit of music at 2139 UTC. 

"no it isn't supposed to be funny" "I didn't forget it" (2139 UTC) OM and YL talking, with laugh track in background "we've been married eight years, don't you wanna do something?" (2140 UTC)

6666.6 kHz 6666.6 USB 6.666.6 MHz radio amateurs 45 metros.  Hearing several OMs talking over each other, complete with the whistling into the mic thing.  Heard a signal report and general pleasantries (similar to traffic heard on 6900 kHz and other frequencies on 45 meters/43 meters).  OMs calling and replying to calls on frequency.  6666.6 USB is similar to 6900 LSB, although 6666.6 USB seems to be more active when the band is open to South America and Central America.  Spanish language traffic heard via COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR on the CT/MA border at 2135 UTC + ongoing. 

Hearing Spanish speakers - freebanders, the usual group, also noted on 6910 kHz LSB and 6915 kHz LSB while 6900 USB appears to be busier than 6900 LSB, chatting away on various frequencies in 45 metros and 43 metros.  Gambio!

Peskies / 6999 USB YL and OM QSO in Spanish 2128 UTC 14 Jan 2019
« on: January 14, 2019, 2129 UTC »
Hearing a YL chatting away on 6999 kHz USB - followed by somebody spinning the VFO (they've been going back and forth from roughly 6950 kHz up through 40 meters and then down below 7 MHz / 7000 kHz again), possibly intentionally causing QRM to the various peskies and freebanders on the radio today?

Can only hear the YL side of the QSO now at 2129 UTC via the Westminster, MD KiwiSDR

Peskies / 6969.5 kHz USB Spanish Language 2240 UTC 12 Jan 2019
« on: January 12, 2019, 2241 UTC »
Strong signals this evening in Spanish, sounds like amateur radio operators (freebanders) the usual ragchew type stuff. 

OTR Old Time Radio pirate station carrier on 6770 kHz at 2018 UTC tune in time.  Using the COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR I have bits and pieces of audio in AM mode and a clearly defined carrier on the waterfall.  S6-S7 signal strength

"476 we read you signal strength 3, go ahead, over" "we have your cooperation" "we are requesting assistance" heavy Caribbean accent.  "We will check VHF from here"  "okay, 476 we copy your transmission" "we just wants to make sure that we are reading your guys"

Station then asked unheard second station to call telephone number 304-2040 and give another signal report.  ID as "476" several times

Receiver is the COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR on the CT/MA border.  Frequency/QRG 8924 kHz USB 8.924 MHz USB voice English language EE speakers heavy accents sounded Jamaican or Caribbean origin 

Peskies / Portuguese on 6925 LSB and 6919 LSB 2200 + UTC 11 Jan 2019
« on: January 11, 2019, 2219 UTC »
6919 kHz LSB and 6925 kHz LSB both active with Portuguese language traffic, some fading.  Likely fishing fleets or pescadores.  The Usual Suspects at this point.  Most of the other traffic on the band tonight in Spanish except for these two frequencies.

6.919 MHz LSB 6.925 MHz LSB

45 metros! puta madre!  Lots of salty language, stations talking over each other and general QRM on 6666.6 kHz USB and 6670 kHz USB, both active at once (along with several other frequencies in the 6.6 MHz range.....yes, 6-7 MHz in general is littered with Latin American voices right now.

Mention of "el barco" at 2215 UTC on 6666.6 USB.  Possibly actually a pescadore in the literal sense.  6670 USB is going non-stop as well.  These guys are all over the 6525-6685 kHz (6525-6765 kHz) aeronautical band.

Two OMs chatting on frequency, they sound better on 6676.6 kHz USB but 6676.7 kHz would also make sense.  Talking about music and giving signal reports.  General ham radio like chit-chat.  Freebanders using the 45 meter band.  45 metros, cambio! 

Heard using the COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR on the CT/MA border. 

Peskies / 7000 kHz LSB Spanish Language Net 2209 UTC 11 Jan 2019
« on: January 11, 2019, 2211 UTC »
Hearing some Spanish language chatter on 7000 kHz 7.000 MHz LSB mode, likely out of South America.  Hearing an OM whistling on frequency at 2210 UTC.  OM talking about whats going on at his house and what his kids did at school, likely land-based "freebanders" or outbanders on everyone's favorite frequency, 7000 kHz.

"23430 tomorrow", discussion of his team...ayyy, chicato (can hear music and diesel engine noise in the background, OM talking very quickly at 2303 UTC - probably discussing catches or perhaps crew requirements?  laid-back QSO but lots of numbers and values being thrown around, QSO still going strong at 2304 UTC.

4411 kHz USB 4.411 MHz USB - SS OM Spanish speaking chatter pescadores

4245 kHz 4.245 MHz presumed fishing fleet communications at 2255 UTC, heard "ciao" and then the frequency went clear. 

Received via remote receiver COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR on the CT/MA border.

North American Shortwave Pirate / UNID 6990 LSB 2250 UTC 7 Jan 2019
« on: January 07, 2019, 2251 UTC »
Heard maybe 15-20 seconds of a song and then off.  Decent signal.  The "Windtalkers" or Native American UNID stations were using this frequency/mode earlier, for more information see these threads in the peskies forum here at HFU:




Music back on at 2153 UTC
