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.

Peskies / 6925 LSB and 6927 USB 2130 UTC 29 Jan 2019

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

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.

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.

9373 LSB SS OMs presumed pescadores fishing boats HF-SSB out of band operations within the SWBC

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

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.
