Very strong signals heard here right now (2251-2252 UTC)...peaking at S7!  OM saying "HOLA! HOLA!" over and over again.  SIO 434.  The station must have moved his antenna or dropped his power down just before 2253 UTC...as I can still hear him but he's down in the noise considerably now...

Hearing Portuguese speaking stations chatting away on 6925 LSB and 6930 LSB, their usual watering holes.  Some impressive signals, especially on 6925 LSB.

6790 kHz 6.790 MHz
USB mode
Spanish language radiotelephone link, presumed Rural Radiotelephone Service (RRTS)

Hearing an OM and a YL talking over each other on 6790 USB...I have logged 6791 USB and several nearby frequencies, generally in the 6700 to 6850 kHz range, give or take...there seem to be a lot of these radiotelephone links in that range, mostly operating out of South America and Central America.  Considering the amount of Spanish and Portuguese voices heard in the 6-7 MHz region this afternoon, this would be no surprise.  Decent signal too.  Both sides of the conversation are coming from the same transmitter...think the old 49 MHz cordless phones - the base station would transmit both sides of the conversation and the headset would only transmit one.  This is likely set up in a similar fashion.

Frequency: 6749 kHz 6.749 MHz
Mode: LSB
Language: Spanish
Origin: Latin America (presumed)

I'm hearing two stations (at least) having a QSO on 6749 LSB, one of the them (the stronger of the two) has considerable background noise in his audio...this could be a fishing fleet communications frequency.  I've heard activity on 6747 kHz in the past, but don't think I've logged 6749 kHz before.  With the storm in the Atlantic right now, the marine and aeronautical bands (as well as the 6765 to 7000 kHz band) have come alive with freebander and out of band marine HF-SSB communications.

Frequency: 6678 kHz USB 6.678 MHz USB

Hearing several stations transmitting over each other at 2234 UTC...music and other sound effects heard, reminds me of CB freeband frequencies when the band is open.  Several Spanish language terms heard between 2234 UTC and 2235 UTC

While scanning the 6200 kHz to 6525 kHz marine band and 6525 kHz to 6765 kHz aircraft band due to the serious Nor'Easter on the US East Coat right now, I stumbled upon a station doing radio checks in LSB mode.  Yep, its a station saying HELLO HELLO and whistling into his mic on 6655 LSB.  This is a common 45 meter pirate or freeband frequency.  SIO 333

Hearing a station saying "HELLOOOOO" over and over again...now speaking Portuguese again. 

Presumed radiotelephone link phone patch Rural Radiotelephone Service (RRTS) Latin American based

Frequency: 6791 kHz 6.791 MHz
Mode: USB
Language: Spanish (Latin American)
User: Presumed radiotelephone link system for rural areas in Central America and South America

Hearing a YL and an OM talking at 2208 UTC tune in.  Sounds very much like a phone conversation and these have been logged in this frequency range several times before.  Above 6850 kHz or so it seems like its mostly pirate or bootleg radio chatter, but the 6765 kHz to 6850 kHz range (roughly) is home to phone links and freebanders mixed in with each other.  Weak signals and poor copy at 2211 UTC.

This may be the group that I heard earlier on 6969.5 USB, but its impossible to tell.  I know the band conditions are changing because both 6925 LSB and 6900 LSB are stronger than they were ~30 minutes ago.  I am hearing weak two-way radio chatter on 6967.7 USB as of 2200-2201 UTC....then the frequency went silent.

UNID two way SSB traffic in USB mode 28-FEB-2018
Frequency: 6952 kHz 6.952 MHz
Band: 43 meters
Language: Presumed Portuguese but possibly Italian (or Portuguese with a different accent?)

This almost sounds like Italian but I'm pretty sure its Portuguese.  Some very strong signals at tune-in (S9!), now more like S6-S7 but very nice audio...which is saying a lot for most "pesky" stations.  I can only hear one side of the conversation at those superlative of signal reports, however.  The second station is barely readable at 2157 UTC.

6810 kHz 6.810 MHz 6.81 MHz USB mode, UNID unidentified Spanish language chatter, possibly a phone patch...lots of heavy fading but I think I'm hearing an OM and a YL talking, and going by the frequency and mode this is in line with the Latin American HF radiotelephone link systems often heard in the 6700-6900 kHz range...

Old Time Radio pirate OTR 6770 AM
6.770 MHz 6.77 MHz 6770 kHz

Hearing swing music on 6770 kHz AM at 2145 UTC.  Strong carrier, wavering between S4 and S5, which is pretty decent for Old Time Radio.  Lots of fading but the carrier is clearly visible on several remote SDR waterfalls.

2204 UTC - signal increased significantly for a few seconds, heard a YL talking pretty clearly, then it dropped back down
2205 UTC - hearing a YL talking still, possibly two YLs talking to each other as part of a skit

6900 kHz LSB 6.900 MHz LSB 6.9 MHz LSB Spanish speaking freeband/outband net for North America...hearing the beginnings of a busy night I think.  Signals are weak now but its still only late afternoon on the East Coast of the USA.

6925 kHz 6.925 MHz
LSB mode
Portuguese language - likely Brazilian fishing fleet communications.  This, along with 6919 kHz and a handful of other frequencies, can almost be counted on to have two way SSB voice traffic on it in the evening hours.  Usually these guys don't show up until 2200-2300 UTC or so, but they've been heard around the clock.  SIO 111 right now, barely there...but I have a feeling they will be getting stronger as the evening progresses.

6969.5 kHz USB mode

This sounds like Portuguese, but its so weak that I'm not 100% sure right now.  Interesting frequency choice too.  I know 6970 kHz (both USB and LSB) is popular, as is 6969 kHz, both are easy to remember.  I don't think I've logged 6969.5 kHz yet though.
