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.

OM reading a EAM with a silly voice, ID'ed as EASY WAY.

This is EASY WAY, out. at 1943 UTC.  8992 kHz USB.  Checked 6712 USB, 11175 USB and 13200 USB and heard nothing.  8992 USB was coming in nicely though.

8850 kHz 8.850 MHz USB mode, several OMs chatting in what sounds like Spanish (weak signals so I'm not 100% sure on the language).   During the daytime the 6-7 MHz guys move up to 8-15 MHz (which makes sense).

Heard via COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR.  Weak Spanish language chatter heard, OM said "no problem, I can hear you" and then silence...weird that they're using LSB, which points toward pesky-ness.  Possibly another wayward fishing fleet net operating out of band. 

14.654.5 MHz 14654.5 kHz LSB

27025 AM (CB channel 6), 27005 AM (CB channel 4) and several out of band frequencies, including 26.915 MHz AM are active this morning on the COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR.   26.785 MHz AM coming in from the southern USA as I type this.  Possibly a sporadic-E opening, lots of fading up and down

I picked one of these up on eBay several months ago as part of my radio emergency kit - the Uniden PRO 401HH is their bare-bones 40 channel AM CB handheld, similar in form and function to the PRO 510XL and PRO 520XL mobiles, pretty cheap too.  Performance is the same as my RadioShack CB HT but it accepts regular AA batteries (compare to the RadioShack's basically dead unable to keep a charge NiCd pack).

The stock rubber duck antenna is meh so I picked up a Cobra HA-TA telescopic whip (which, according to my tests, actually works really well).  Hearing truckers chatting away on channel 19 - 27.185 MHz AM locally as well as some skip on channels 6 and 11 27.025 AM and 27.085 AM with the telescopic whip.  Did a radio check on 19 and a trucker came back with a good report, he was only about 1.5 miles away but that's not bad for an urban environment with a stock radio.

Not sure what language I'm hearing, maybe French?  Portuguese?  No idea.  5 MHz band has several UNID SSB QSOs in progress at this time.  Receiver is the Westminster, MD KiwiSDR.

Peskies / 6925 LSB and 6935 LSB Portuguese 26-27 Dec 2018

6925 kHz LSB and 6935 LSB Portuguese language chatter, pescadores, fishing boats active on both frequencies at once 6925 kHz and 6935 kHz, good signals.  Heard via COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR - both frequencies still busy at 0000 UTC 27 December 2018

UNID marine HF-SSB marine mobile 6479 kHz 6.479 MHz English language man and woman speaking - second log

Last heard on 12/12/18 at 2155 UTC (almost exactly two weeks ago) - heard OM refer to the YL as "Sarah", talking about the boardwalk.  More heavy Caribbean accented English heard.  "What you got to eat for dinna?" at 2256 UTC.  YL and OM continuing to talk....

6479 USB might be a regular net...

6400 kHz AM Pyongyang Broadcasting Station PBS North Korea DPRK North Korean radio - hearing military or "patriotic" music at 2250 UTC and 2251 UTC, mixing with Spanish language chatter on 6400 kHz USB and data bursts on 6401 kHz (in USB mode anyway).   Good signal from the North Koreans so one wonders if the fishing fleets using the frequency can hear it as well. 

Received via COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR on the CT/MA border

Possibly two QSOs on the same frequency.  Hearing distorted audio on 6999 kHz and 6998.8 kHz (both in LSB mode), hearing English and possibly a second language.  Heavy accents. 

Peskies / 6717 kHz USB Spanish Language QSOs 2245 UTC 26 Dec 2018

6717 kHz / 6.717 MHz USB mode hearing some Spanish language chatter on frequency, with lots of static crash QRN at the moment.

Receiver is the COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR remote receiver located on the CT/MA border

via COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR UNID unknown carrier 6885 kHz

Carrier on 6885 kHz, I think I hear faint music but can't be 100% sure.  The Relay Station is still going on 6880 kHz just 5 kHz down from this carrier...

6865 kHz or so, maybe 6865.2, sounds distorted with some two-way QRM - music is there though

Edit, this might actually be 6866 kHz LSB, with some USB unsuppressed...almost 6866 DSB?
