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. 

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

Peskies / Pescadores on 5000 kHz USB (with WWV!) 2252 UTC 16 Jan 2019

These guys are back again!  WWV is coming in very strong (S9) but these two stations are right up there with WWV and the QRM doesn't seem to be phasing them at all. 

Two-way HF SSB traffic on 5000 kHz USB 5.000 MHz USB co-channel QRM from WWV time frequency station.

Peskies / 6300 kHz USB - Two QSOs at once - 2220 UTC 16 Jan 2019
« on: January 16, 2019, 2221 UTC »
UNID language, sounds like an Afro-Caribbean type language, and Spanish (underneath it).  I've logged this weird language on 6300 USB a couple times before, and I think this might be a more or less regular thing.  Spanish speaking OM at 2219 UTC kept asking the stronger station "what is your name?" "who are you?" types of questions, maybe wondering what he's doing on his frequency.

6300 kHz is a legal HF-SSB marine frequency in the 6 MHz band IIRC.  Well, its within the legal band.  Now hearing two Spanish speaking OMs on 6300 USB and the stronger unknown language speaking OM has gone quiet, or changed frequencies....nope, he's back.  Maybe three QSOs going on at once at this point, the frequency is pretty busy.

Receiver is the Westminster, MD KiwiSDR

Via Westminster, MD KiwiSDR.  Very strong SSB signal at tune in, OM talking about conditions in the kitchen in rapid Spanish.  Then the expected "cambio" (sounds like "gambio" to the American ear) and nothing.  Not sure if he's talking about the kitchen or galley on his ship or at home.  SIO 444, best sounding audio at 6363.5 kHz USB (at first I thought he was using 6363.6 kHz, because that would be another easy-to-remember frequency).

UNID Spanish language marine QSO 6 MHz band 6.363.5 MHz 6363.5 kHz USB mode.  SS OMs maritime presumed pescadores

Hearing several stations working net control on 6765 kHz USB (SHARES Northern), net control on 6765 USB is NCS583 appears to be net control station at 1753 UTC.  Heard net control NNB4DW (possibly alternate?) at 1755 UTC NNE5PY then asks for additional stations (final rotation) AAR7DG and several other callsigns heard.  Multiple net control stations make calls, then ask for relays for unheard stations to all net control stations.  Very professional procedures heard on 6765 USB and 6845 USB.  FEMA SHARES network. 

6845 kHz USB even stronger signal than 6765 USB "did you copy the digital message, over?" "no I did not copy" "uh, roger, we will resend, out" AAR1JB net control for "SHARES Northeast" (6845 USB) at 1754 UTC. 

Not hearing anything on 6910 USB while 6765 USB and 6845 USB remain active.  Listening via Westminster, MD KiwiSDR.

5430 kHz 5.430 MHz USB SSB voice communications log UNID two-way traffic Spanish speaking OM and YL

Heard several mentions of la marihuana around tune in, OM and YL having a pleasant (compared to the other QSOs I've monitored) conversation.  Sounds like a husband and wife talking about domestic matters, how the kids are doing, etc.  Sounds like a fishing boat captain or sailor talking to his XYL or YL back at home?  Doesn't seem like a phone patch but I could be wrong, this is in the right frequency allocation for it. 

Received via KiwiSDR in Westminster, MD.  Still going strong at 2257 UTC....YL is talking about problems with the bathroom, which fits with the OM talking to his XYL/YL theory. 

Peskies / 5394 kHz LSB Portuguese Language UNID 2252 UTC 15 Jan 2019
« on: January 15, 2019, 2254 UTC »
5394 kHz LSB - 5.394 MHz - in between the 60 meter amateur channelized frequency plan / channels.  I believe this is Portuguese and I'm assuming its pescadores - reminds me of the 6925 kHz LSB crowd and the laundry list of other pescadore frequencies logged previously.

Peskies / Pescadores on 5000 kHz USB (with WWV!) 2245 UTC 15 Jan 2019

The 5000 kHz USB 5.000 MHz USB guys are back!  Talking to each other with the WWV clicks in the background.  Almost sounds like Portuguese instead of Spanish (at least this group).  I noted another active frequency (5515 kHz) and there are likely other 4-6 MHz or 4-7 MHz band logs as the sun sets and ops move lower in frequency.

On second thought, this could be Spanish, its difficult for me to be 100% sure with the (obvious) QRM from WWV on 5000 kHz.  Lots of Spanish words that I know could very well be the same in Italian or Portuguese.

UNID HF radio net on 5000 kHz USB (same frequency as WWV and WWVH) on-going at 2249 UTC 15 January 2019.

Received via Westminster, MD KiwiSDR. 

5515 kHz USB 5.515 MHz USB SS OM Spanish speaking stations UNID net, I think this is a new one for me.  Lots of 5 MHz activity, OM talking about his plans for tomorrow, with the tell-tale "gambio" (cambio) "over" end-of-transmission proword.  Lots of whistling on frequency at 2245 UTC.  Receiver is the Westminster, MD KiwiSDR.

I can hear this locally and on the Westminster, MD KiwiSDR.  Strong Link-11 signals on 6942 kHz (center frequency) and 6982 kHz (window frequency, if you're tuning in USB mode).  Center frequency 6983.5 kHz or 6983.6 kHz.

6776 kHz 6.776 MHz USB mode Spanish language SSB voice UNID net.  Received via Westminster, MD KiwiSDR

"relax, relax, be cautious" - OM talking about his (or somebody else's) girlfriend at 2159 UTC.  Spanish language speaking OM continuing at 2200 UTC.  Mention of Venezuela at 2200...then a second station joined in (weaker than the first).  Talking considerably faster too.  Lots of salty language (second station).  No names heard as of yet. 

YL: "okay thank you very much have a good evening"
OM: "ya okay thank you very much have a good evening signing off"

tuned in just as the QSO was ending (maybe?) via the KiwiSDR in Westminster, MD

Peskies / 6 MHz Marine SSB Logs 2140-2150 UTC 15 Jan 2019
« on: January 15, 2019, 2151 UTC »
6203 kHz USB - Spanish language chatter, presumed pescadores
6215 kHz USB - several QSOs going at once, this is the 6 MHz HF-SSB marine calling frequency
6227 kHz USB - UNID language heard here, weak QSO in progress, possibly Portuguese
6230 kHz USB - weather report in progress, heard OM talking over meteo with "Key West, 13 knots" (English) strong signal
6233 kHz USB - Portuguese language chatter, presumed pescadores
6245 kHz USB - "did you hear that?" thick Caribbean accent
6292 kHz USB - strange signal heard here, tuned in at 2144 UTC to hear what sounded like music, then DTMF tone bursts, possibly a pirate
6309 kHz USB - "a good one, ya mon" with Spanish voices in the background (on same frequency), annoying het/carrier QRM
6339 kHz USB - ongoing weatherfax/wefax transmission at 2145 UTC
6400 kHz USB - no PBS Pyongyang from DPRK (yet anyway)...but, there's weak Spanish language chatter on the USB side!
6470 kHz USB - "later, later" (in Spanish), good signal at 2148 UTC
6488 kHz USB - UNID language, sounds Caribbean in origin (at 2149 UTC)
6501 kHz USB - US Coast Guard weather broadcast at 2150 UTC, very good signal with some splatter to adjacent frequencies
6525 kHz USB - weak Spanish language (I think) chatter heard here.

6 MHz marine band is 6200 kHz to 6525 kHz - received via remote receiver Westminster, MD KiwiSDR

I know that this sort of straddles the gray area between Peskies and Utility, but since these users are marine mobile operating on real HF-SSB marine frequencies...I decided to post in Utility.  Hearing at least two different QSOs in progress on 6215 kHz, USB mode.  One of them involves a YL, but her signal is weakest. 

Heard via the Westminster, MD KiwiSDR.  Tune in time: 2138 UTC.  YL now chatting at 2139 UTC, does not seem to be distress traffic to me...  ::)
