Peskies / 6249 USB vs. 6250 AM Really Messy 2205 UTC 6 Feb 2019
« on: February 06, 2019, 2208 UTC »
6250 kHz AM presumed pirate station (or maybe Voice Of The People clandestine) - I have a carrier and some audio, but the pescadores chatting away on 6249 kHz USB are owning the frequency.  The 1000 Hz het makes listening borderline painful, but the guys on 6249 USB don't seem to mind.  They're yakking away.  6250 kHz is an interesting choice given how busy the 6 MHz marine band is.

Nearby frequencies 6248 kHz LSB, 6255 kHz USB and 6256.5 kHz/6256.6 kHz LSB (maybe another QSO on or around 6255 at this point its hard to tell its QRM city) also active with maritime mobile SSB chatter. 

6210 kHz USB 6.210 MHz USB, OM speaking unknown language, although I'm hearing words that sound like Spanish or Portuguese.  Could be another one of the island peskies, mon. 

Of course, 6210 USB is actually within the legal 6 MHz maritime band  :P

6790 kHz is one of the popular ones.  Hearing an OM and a YL talking on 6790 USB, and another QSO on 6792 USB mixing in.  There might be a third, or four QSO on or nearby in frequency as seems to be the norm.  Spanish language, possibly a ship to shore or rig to shore "radiotelephone" type deal...husband talking to his wife at home, etc.

Via COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR on the CT/MA border.

UNID pirate station on 6925 kHz (AM mode, just a carrier at the moment), with the usual suspects Portuguese speaking pescadores on 6925 kHz LSB and some Spanish language chatter on 6920 kHz USB, with 6925 LSB and 6920 USB mixing together at points.  Not pleasant to listen to in AM mode tuned to 6925 kHz.

Received via COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR.  Band is open to Latin America for sure.  OM laughing and carrying on, heavy QRM from carrier/data on 6762 kHz.  Another poor frequency choice due to the USAF using 6761 USB. 

aye la banda de 45 metros, cambio!

6666.6 kHz 6.6666 MHz 6.666 USB etc etc - I'm hearing two or three stations talking over each other on 6666.6 USB right now on the COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR.  Spanish language, lots of whistling into mics and general CB-like behavior. 

6570 kHz USB 6.570 MHz USB, Spanish speaking freebanders, specifically talking about happenings in the 'hood.  Lots of whistling into mics, etc.  Received via COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR

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.

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

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.
