2  Loggings / Peskies / UNID Radio Checks in Spanish 6900 kHz LSB 1526 UTC 24 Sept 2017 on: Today at 15:27
S7-S9 very strong station doing radio checks (repeating "hello, are conditions good today?") and whistling into microphone.  Audio seems a bit overmodulated.
3  Loggings / Shortwave Pirate / Re: UNID 6880 AM 1505 UTC 21 Sept 2017 on: September 21, 2017, 2130 UTC
Came back to radio/computer at 2130 UTC.  Still seeing a carrier on 6880.0 kHz on several East Coast USA remote SDR receivers.  No audio heard at this time...

Edit:  checked one of the VA SDRs and can hear music at 2131 UTC.  Strong S9 signal with the usual nice wide and strong AM audio with powerful signal and modulation, 10-11 kHz bandwidth.  Noise level has increased a bit but still sounding good (only in VA though).  Earlier today, this station was loud all up and down the East Coast. 
4  Loggings / Peskies / UNID Spanish Language 6920 kHz LSB 2130 UTC 21 Sept 2017 on: September 21, 2017, 2129 UTC
Hearing the "first wave" of afternoon/evening pescadores or peskies for today on 6920 LSB.  Lots of noise and static crashes and nearby data signals making copy difficult but I'm pretty sure they're speaking Spanish. 
5  Loggings / 10/11 meters / Re: 11 meters freeband frequencies on: September 21, 2017, 1633 UTC
In my experience, 27.455 USB / 27455 USB is the de facto Latin American SSB calling frequency (along with several others, including several you listed like 26.215 MHz USB / 26215 USB and 26.225 MHz USB / 26225 USB.

They also make heavy use of various frequencies in the 27600-27800 region, USB and LSB, with activity centered around 27.665 MHz USB/LSB, 27.695 MHz USB/LSB, and frequencies near these in 5 kHz steps or 10 kHz channelized (export radio) steps.  Seems like a sizable amount of these operators are using modified amateur radio or ham radio equipment on 11 meters and therefore have a VFO instead of an export 10 meter radio with 10 kHz channelized steps + a clarifier (+ or - 5 kHz) and maybe a +10kHz switch to get complete frequency coverage over a radio's given range.
6  Loggings / Shortwave Pirate / Re: UNID 6925 USB 1621 UTC 21 Sep 2017 on: September 21, 2017, 1623 UTC
Very faint signal locally on 6925 kHz USB

7  Loggings / Shortwave Pirate / UNID 6900 USB 1510 UTC 21 Sept 2017 on: September 21, 2017, 1510 UTC
Sounds like a live relay of the UNID on 6880 AM, appears to have gone off the air at 1513 UTC.
8  Loggings / Shortwave Pirate / UNID 6880 AM 1505 UTC 21 Sept 2017 on: September 21, 2017, 1506 UTC
Seeing a large signal on the waterfall at 1505 UTC.  The nice loud and wide AM signal usually found on 6925 kHz AM during daytime.  Operator must be trying alternate frequencies (as 6880 kHz has been seen many times before it makes sense).  

1506 UTC - Steeler's Wheel - Stuck In The Middle With You
1507 UTC - deep fade, then back up to SIO 444 with S7-S8 signal strength and very little noise
1514 UTC - minor data QRM on 6880 kHz USB upper side of the AM signal, however this station is so powerful it doesn't matter
1518 UTC - checked Rochester, NY SDR, have signal at S7 with very little noise
1527 UTC - The Beatles - A Day In The Life
1528 UTC - barely readable (really carrier on 6880.0 kHz only) signal on Ohio SDR
1533 UTC - George Harrison - Give Me Love (Give Me Peace on Earth)
1555 UTC - Procol Harum - Whiter Shade of Pale
1621 UTC - The Beatles - Come Together
1624 UTC - The Rolling Stones - Bitch
1629 UTC - signal down a lot, now S3-S4, much harder copy
1630 UTC - music back up some, signal now S5
1635 UTC - still having trouble copying the music due to more noise
9  Loggings / Peskies / UNID Spanish Language 14636.5 kHz USB 1349 UTC 21 Sept 2017 on: September 21, 2017, 1351 UTC
Unfortunately I have to run out of the door but I wanted to add this last long.  I am hearing more Spanish language two-way comms, this time above the upper edge of the 20 meter amateur radio band, where lots of land mobile and military/government communications are heard. 

These communications seem considerably more disciplined than other traffic heard this morning.  Possibly government/military or NGO use (re: recent earthquake in Mexico City).  Since I have to leave the radio for a little bit I'm just making the log, with the plan of coming back to see if the net is still active later on.  Several numerical "strings" heard (possibly callsigns).  Very professional sounding traffic.  No whistling into microphones or "HOLA HOLA HOLA" heard. 
10  Loggings / Peskies / UNID Spanish Language 11802 kHz USB 1345 UTC 21 Sept 2017 on: September 21, 2017, 1347 UTC
UNID Spanish language communications, presumed fishermen fishing fleets fishery radio pescadores
Frequency: 11802 kHz 11.802 MHz
Mode: USB
Right in the middle of the 25 meter shortwave broadcast band

Heard "los pescadores" mentioned.  Possibly a freeband operator calling the fishing fleets.  Strong signal, operator whistling into microphone.  Mention of "30" and "33" (possibly numerical callsigns or IDs).  Several curse words heard, very informal. 
11  Loggings / Peskies / UNID Spanish Language 6712.2 kHz USB 1340 UTC 21 Sept 2017 on: September 21, 2017, 1342 UTC
Several numbers being read, frequency is 6712.2 kHz, one station kept saying "340" "340" over and over again.  Not sure if this is a numerical callsign or ID of some sort.  Interesting frequency choice to say the least...
12  Loggings / Peskies / UNID Spanish Language 6912 kHz USB 1338 UTC 21 Sept 2017 on: September 21, 2017, 1339 UTC
Heard several mentions of "la plata" ("silver", or better translated as "money" or "cash").  Heavy fading on this QSO allowing me to only hear one station (I think).  SIO 111.  Lots of Spanish speakers using USB mode (mostly) this morning.
13  Loggings / Peskies / UNID Spanish Language 6881 kHz USB 1336 UTC 21 Sept 2017 on: September 21, 2017, 1337 UTC
SIO 222 or so, very faint Spanish voices heard this morning (one of several frequencies).  These QSOs seem to pop up as quickly as they disappear.  Sounds like a casual QSO between two stations.  No IDs or names heard. 
14  Loggings / Peskies / UNID Spanish Language 6940 kHz USB 1333 UTC 21 Sept 2017 on: September 21, 2017, 1335 UTC
More Spanish voices (with some minor QRM from 6943 kHz USB) on 6940 kHz USB (see also, the various other 5 kHz frequency steps logged this morning).  Light traffic, possibly a more "official" net than the freebanders heard elsewhere on the bands.  Hard to tell due to weak signals
15  Loggings / Peskies / UNID Spanish Language 6943 kHz USB 1330 USB 21 Sept 2017 on: September 21, 2017, 1333 UTC
Hearing faint Spanish language voice traffic SS speakers on 6943 kHz 6.943 MHz USB mode at 1330 UTC (logging now at 1332 UTC).  Very faint traffic this morning (East Coast USA).
