Peskies / Island Peskies 6970 kHz USB 2247 UTC 7 Jan 2019
« on: January 07, 2019, 2248 UTC »
Possibly caught the tail end of a QSO, but heard an OM with a Jamaican or Caribbean accent say "roger" very clearly.  Receiver is the COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR.  Nothing after the "roger" transmission...

I have logged 6771.5 kHz USB several times, but 6771 kHz seems like a new one.  Two stations having a QSO, possibly a husband and wife talking, which would support the radiotelephone link (RRTS, Rural Radiotelephone Service, used in South America) theory.  Pretty tame conversation, no salty sailor talk which would indicate that I'm not hearing the usual pescadores or fishing fleet communications.

Heard on the COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR on the CT/MA border.  Lots and lots of activity on the 6-10 MHz region this evening.  I imagine that the lower frequencies will light up too. 

Peskies / 6800 kHz LSB Busy Freebander Net 2240+ UTC 7 Jan 2019

6800 kHz 6.800 MHz - likely moved down from 6900 LSB because of the massive 50 kHz wide OTHR or wideband data (???) signal.  The transmissions really remind me of "The Usual Suspects" from 6900 kHz but they could very well be a different group. 

Dozens of active frequencies in the 6-7 MHz region this evening.  6695 kHz, 6695.5 kHz and 6696 kHz (all in USB mode) have been logged previously, 6710.5 USB is also busy.  3-4 different OMs talking and at least one YL.  Use of radio operator pro-words such as "gambio!" is widespread.  The usual pleasantries and signal reports given on both frequencies.  Unsure of origin but going by the accent, these stations are coming out of South America.  Yet another "Carlito" and a OM that starts almost every transmission with a whistle into the  mic.  At 2240 UTC on 6710.5 kHz, it appears to just be the OM and YL. 

Receiver is the COMMSIGMA SDR on the CT/MA border. 

Very good signals at 2230 UTC - 2231 UTC, heard mentions of Beyonce, OM and YL chatting.  OM has a very good signal, SIO 444 easily and was pushing S8-S9 at tune in.  Poor frequency choice since they're in the middle of the busy 6 MHz aeronautical on-route band 6525 kHz to 6685 kHz but what do they care?  cf. 6666.6 kHz and other frequencies, etc.  YL's signal is much weaker, almost unreadable.  OM mentioned Venezuela and an unidentifiable word/place at 2234 UTC.  2234 UTC....- the usual "buenas tardes!" and compliments on signal strength, etc. then the frequency went quiet.  Sounds like the QSO ended. 

UNID Spanish speakers radio amateurs 6.6 MHz EC Echo Charlie 6615 kHz 6.615 MHz USB SS OM and YL pirates freebanders outbanders, Latin American 45 meter band 45 metros.  Receiver is the COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR located on the CT/MA border.

Peskies / 6990 USB Spanish Speaking Freebanders 2225 UTC 7 Jan 2019
« on: January 07, 2019, 2226 UTC »
Along with the Native American activity on 6990 LSB, there's a Spanish language net active on 6990 USB.  Pretty busy frequency this evening.  The usual freebander suspects yakking away again.

OM speaking American Indian language at 2223 UTC tune in time.  Some QRM from 6990 USB.  So far only hearing one station.  Some more QRM at 2224

9779 kHz 9.779 MHz USB - heard "Carlito" clearly at 2219 UTC.  Two or three stations talking casually.  Juanito and Carlito, also hiding in the 31 meter band.  Probably fishing boats or freebanders.  I'm leaning more towards fishing boats.  Mention of "El Gordito" at 2220 UTC (Gordito means "the little fat one" but could easily be a term of endearment for a fat fishing boat captain, etc).  Talking about something in kilograms.  Probably fishing catches?  Some fading.  Heard on the COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR on the CT/MA border.  Still going strong at 2221 UTC.

OM talking about his fishing catch and other typical sailor talk.  Heard via COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR.  Considering the monster SW broadcast signal on 9350 kHz, these guys are just outside the outer edge of the sideband splatter characteristic of a very powerful shortwave signal.  Pretty smart actually.  Compared to their compadres in the 8 MHz and lower edge of 9 MHz these guys are a lot harder to find.  Reminds of the Gloustermen using 6095 kHz and hiding in the 49 meter broadcast band. 

9373 kHz 9.373 MHz USB mode, Latin American fishing fleet communications via HF marine radio, out of band communications....Spanish speakers SS OMs UNID net

Fixed mobile band is 8000 kHz to 8195 kHz, shared with marine users, 8 MHz maritime mobile band is 8195 kHz to 8815 kHz so users in the 8000 kHz to 8815 kHz range are considered "legit" but I'm still logging them under "peskies"

8779 kHz LSB - Portuguese, intermittent signals, probably fishing fleets
8812 kHz USB - Spanish language, likely fishing boats or shipping
8959 kHz USB - Spanish language, weak
8969 kHz USB - Spanish language, with QRM from 8970 USB
8970 kHz USB - Spanish, OMs checking into a net, sounds a lot like freebanders or an informal net
8979 kHz USB - Spanish language, presumably pescadores or freebanders (noticing a pattern here)
8989 kHz USB - Spanish speakers, very good signals at 2202 UTC, this is a near daily log - talking about radio equipment (maybe freebanders)
8992 kHz USB - LIBRARY working UNID station with authentication (USAF HF-GCS coming in nicely)
9000 kHz USB - hearing voices mixing together, along with either feedback or a CW signal on 9001 kHz?
9015 kHz USB - Portuguese language chatter, likely fishing fleet communications
9018 kHz USB - Spanish language chatter, presumably more pescadores on the radio
9030 kHz USB - Spanish language chatter, weak but its there (and busy!)
9055.5 kHz USB - More Spanish speakers
9150 kHz USB - Spanish language, short responses, more professional sounding radio ops here (at 2210 UTC)
9175 kHz USB - UNID net, OM and YL talking about books and other supplies, dollar amounts discussed (Spanish language)
9182 kHz USB - Spanish language chatter, several mentions of "barco" (boat)
9191 kHz USB - UNID net, Asian language
9205 kHz USB - Spanish language chatter, presumably fishing fleets
9221 kHz USB - Spanish language chatter, presumably fishing fleets

Peskies / 9191 kHz USB UNID Language 2155 UTC 7 Jan 2019
« on: January 07, 2019, 2158 UTC »
Unknown language, presumably Asian, heard with good signals on the COMMSIGMA SDR around 2155 UTC, then either off or a very rapid fade out. 

Peskies / 9175 kHz USB OM and YL QSO Spanish 2155 UTC 7 Jan 2019
« on: January 07, 2019, 2157 UTC »
Possibly a missionary net?  Lots of discussion of books, amounts of items, and amounts (in dollars!).  OM and YL talking in Spanish.  Lots of the good old "gambio" pro-word, although the YL keeps saying "QUE?" when she can't understand.  OM whistling into mic at 2157 UTC.

Peskies / 10400 kHz USB UNID Language 1955 UTC 6 Jan 2019

Another UNID net heard on the COMMSIGMA SDR just shy of 2000 UTC on 01/06/2019

10008.8 kHz, originally had them tuned on 10009 kHz.  USB voice.  Weak OM chatter heard, I think its the Jamaican like accented chatter heard on the 43 meter band...maybe not though because of the poor signals. 

10022.2 kHz USB

  Very pescadore-like chatter.  Weak signals on the COMMSIGMA SDR.  Might have heard an English word or two in there at 1949 UTC ("tomorrow").  These guys might be related to the island peskies heard on 69xx frequencies lately.
