Very similar to the on-going bootleg or freebander net on 6666.6 kHz USB, are two OMs talking on 6676.6 kHz USB.  Another easy to remember frequency.  This doesn't have the "net" characteristics that other frequencies have (no stations checking in, no QRM, etc) but its still active as of 0034 UTC.

6.666.6 MHz 6.6666 MHz 6666.6 USB

Another interesting frequency...only this time its in the middle of the 6 MHz aeronautical HF-SSB band.  HF aircraft communications are not what you want to be interfering with.  Yeah, I know about the 6.6 MHz "Echo Charlie" or "EC" operators known to hang around here...but I thought that was a mostly European thing...with the American counterparts staying above 6765 kHz (and below 7000 kHz) for the most part...and usually keeping between 6800 and 6990 kHz at that.

"we gotta figure out who's transmitting here" heard in English, then switched back to Spanish.  OM talking in a monologue fashion about the situation of the people of Latin America.  Somebody whistled over him at 0022 UTC. 

This almost seems like a pirate station vs. bootleg two-way HF or freebanders or ham operators operating out of band.  Unfortunately they faded down to the noise shortly after I tuned in...

0023 UTC - nevermind, its not a broadcaster...two stations "checked in" with "hey what's up" and "Santa Clara!" "hey, Juan, what's up"
0024 UTC - "3 Cuanico...3 Cuanico" repeated
0025 UTC - "hello frequency! over"
0026 UTC - several stations are now talking over each other in typical "CB" fashion...beginning to sound like a ham radio pileup
0027 UTC - frequency fell silent for 10 seconds or so, now there's a station right at noise floor talking
0027 UTC - somebody whistled into their mic and said "hey frequency! can you copy Dominican Republic?"
0029 UTC - "who is that calling?" [signals are getting weaker now]
0029 UTC - "bunny! bunny! bunny!" followed by another whistle into the mic
0030 UTC - the same station continues to whistle into their mic and cause genera QRM
0031 UTC - "viva Mexico!" repeated several times, just above noise at this point

UNID Spanish language net, likely freebanders - another easy-to-remember frequency choice here!

6777.7 kHz USB 6.7777 MHz 6.777.7 MHz 6777.7 USB first heard at 0018 UTC Jan 26th, 2018.  Two OMs talking, casual amateur radio like chatter.  Pretty close to previously-logged telephone patch network frequencies 6771.5 kHz, 6772.5 kHz, 6780 kHz and others.

UNID Spanish language speaking stations
Frequency:  6771.5 kHz
Mode: USB

mention of "lots of traffic" at 0015 UTC, OM talking at 0016.  This is possibly part of a rural radiotelephone network operating in South America.

UNID Spanish speaking stations bootleg operators
Frequency: 6996 kHz 6.996 MHz
Mode: LSB
Time: 0000 UTC (on-going) Jan 26, 2018
SIO: 222 at best.  Some sort of weak FSK signal nearby is making copy nearly impossible

I listed two frequencies because the two stations seem to be off from each other.  One sounds better on 6986.6 kHz or 6986.7 kHz (maybe 6986.66 kHz?) and the other seems closer to 6987.0 kHz, maybe 6986.9 kHz.  Use of these repeating digits is very common with these users and this spectrum so its makes sense.  Interesting callsigns heard on this frequency.  Several mentions of "doll" (not sure what they're referring to here...) - could be a handle.  Several mentions of kilo, and "dog".  Probably just casual amateur radio operator chatter.  Operating out of band, of course

43 meters continues to "go long" with the very low foF2 tonight.  Hearing very strong Portuguese chatter on several frequencies, including the almost always-on 6925 kHz LSB.  6919 kHz LSB and 6935 kHz LSB are just as active.  Very strong signals heard on 6935 LSB around 0000 UTC.  The Spanish speakers are also still very active, centering around 6900 kHz and just below the bottom edge of the 40 meter band at 7000 kHz.  I monitored traffic on both 7000 kHz USB and 7000 kHz LSB this evening (and neither of those logs were of ham operators).

UNID American fishermen operating out of band
Frequency: 3311 kHz 3.311 MHz
Mode: USB
Location: Unknown

English speaking (American accents) fishermen talking about, well, fish.   Casual conversation in the 90 meter broadcast band, they've got broadcast stations on 3310 kHz and 3320 kHz (not to mention CHU on 3330 kHz).  Very good spot to "hide" frequency wise!  Probably wouldn't have found them if the conditions weren't favoring the lower frequencies so much.  Thanks to nc-jay for this find!

6200 kHz to 6525 kHz 6 MHz HF-SSB marine band maritime HF mobile band 25 Jan 2018 into 26 Jan 2018 UTC

6200 kHz USB - Spanish language chatter, fishing boats, SIO 333
6203 kHz USB - Two QSOs going at once Italian language, "prego" heard several times QRM from 6205 carrier
6212 kHz USB - English language, probably fishery radio net (closer to 6212.2 kHz)
6215 kHz USB - Spanish language
6221 kHz USB - Spanish language, fishing fleet chatter, weak
6262 kHz USB - Spanish language, informal chatter
6269.5 kHz USB - Spanish language, OM reading series of numbers with decimal points
6273 kHz LSB - Spanish language w/QRM from 6269.5 USB
6277 kHz USB - Spanish language, very strong - fishery HF radio
6300 kHz USB - Maybe Italian? language, lots of deep long fades (weird propagation tonight)
6303 kHz USB - Spanish language, OM and YL talking, long pauses between replies, maybe a phone patch
6363 kHz USB - Spanish language, typical pescadore CB-like chatter
6465 kHz USB - Spanish language, S9+30 very good copy, sounds like another fishing fleet radio net

6525 kHz - 6765 kHz is aeronautical mobile

Hearing French weather transmission with very good copy tonight on MF-SSB marine frequency 2 MHz maine band 2749 kHz 2.749 MHz USB mode.  Canadian maritime weather transmission on-going at 2323 UTC tune-in time.  SIO 333 with some noise but very good copy.

Spanish speaking freeband nets are active tonight!  Hearing an OM singing on 6900 kHz USB, with another station saying "20" over and over again on top of the singing station at 2316 UTC.  6900 kHz LSB with the usual SS Spanish language ragchew net. 

Utility / HF-SSB Marine 6 MHz 6212 USB and 6215 USB 25 Jan 2018

Hearing English language traffic (with heavy fading) on 6212 kHz USB (seems closer to 6212.2 kHz USB) and stronger Spanish language chatter on 6215 kHz USB.  Reminds me of the traffic heard in the 6765-7000 kHz range (only this time they're actually operating on the real marine frequency bands!).

Lots of OTH radar QRM over both QSOs.  2300-2315 UTC

Several nets active at once, often causing QRM:

6950 kHz USB - Spanish language - sporadic traffic
6955 kHz LSB - Spanish language - very active with strong signals
6955 kHz USB - Spanish language, weaker than 6955 LSB but certainly there
6958 kHz LSB - Spanish language, about as strong as 6955 LSB

Hearing an OM and a YL having an informal QSO on 7000 kHz LSB (this is not the same group of stations heard earlier on 7000 kHz USB).  This is most certainly Spanish and has a distinctive Mexican Spanish accent.  Lots of deliberate QRM (people whistling into microphones usually).  Possibly a net or maybe one of these old school telephone patch systems that operate in Latin America.

Very busy band tonight!  Hearing informal Spanish language chatter on (or very close to) a MARS frequency of 6968.5 USB, instead they're using 6969 USB. 

SIO 222, Spanish language freeband chatter
