It's a Radio Station from Luis Guillon in Buenos Aires, I know it because I talked with the operator of the station on his first transmission tests. The operator name is Lucas. R Dontri has better recepcion on sdr of Saladillo.

R4002,

That's a very used frequency by argentinians freebanders, especially the segment between 6070 and 6985kcs. The frequencies up to the alredy mentioned are most used by chileans ... at least here in the southern cone ... I don't know much about the freebanders situation in caribean or Mexico but they are options too... 73!

R4002,

It is the most probable that they are freebanders, generally Spanish speaking fisherers (from Argentina, Chile, Peru, etc) respect a more little the broadcast segments, the problem is that in the Americas are many spanish speaking countries, so they could be fisherers or just freebanders from the caribbean, and I do not have much information about radio operation on that latitudes. BUT according my conversations with the argentinean freebander the ID is correct. I'm not too sure but is the most possible hypothesis according also with what you describe in the log.

I heard OM transmitting music for call the attention of other 43 meter band AM operators.

Desciption of what I heard: 10 minutes of continuous music, after the ten minute music the operator makes a general call, no one ansewered, a few more minutes of music, then the transmission ceased suddenly.

I remember to heard about a outbander group that use that frequencies in SSB, according to some conversations that I had with one of these operators of the 25 meter band, this transmissions could come from Cordoba province in Argentina, is just an supposition but I should check it for be sure.

R4002,

It's a pleasure for me to share all the information that I have about fequencies and all relationated with shortwave bands, I must thank you too for share your listenings and knowledge.

Are you able to hear activity on any of those frequencies?
For the moment I do not have SSB receiver because the one that I had is borrowed ... however the Portuguese transmissions in LSB comes from ships or from the super big pirate movement that exist in the souther cone, generally the most used frequency by chileans is 6993-6996kcs, argentineans between 6970 and 6990kcs and brazilians use basically everything from 6800 to 7000kcs.

On 6995 is also a "non official simplex comms network" used by OWs from the Salta province in Argentina, some of these transmission comes from other provincies in the north of Argentina. Other very interesting frequency is 6955 LSB that is operated by isolated health rural centres in the Salta province in Argentina, sometimes you hear things like: ...man with half of his body paralized, the local priest is carrying him to the hospital in the city... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dUkA81W915A .

I got a new RTL SDR on ebay so in few more time I'll be checking these frequencies again  ;D

Thank you for give me the channels that are used by these probably brazilians fisherers, I'll listen to that frequencies and try to translate what they say for have an idea about what are they talk about.

73!

R4002,

Excuse my delay but it seems that the web site was updated.

So these are likely South American in origin?
Yes, these service is very used by these argentinean cattle ranches and it was also used by the chilean army for link antartic military bases and the families of the soldiers in the continental chilean territory.

What's the official title of it in Spanish?
SERVICIO RADIOTELEFONICO TERRESTRE RURAL.

If these are remote Argentine cattle ranches, are they operating a crude telephone patch system?
According what I know this service is also used in Mexico but in Argentina are private companies who administrate this network, as I was telling you before (in the other answer to this post) is possibe to hear the conversation in a unique channel and not in two different as duplex communications do, so I really don't know what is the equipment used by the "telephonic service".

The proced for solicite a link between farms or communicate with a  cellphone of the "normal/common" network is calling to the radiotelephonic central on the "call channel", the central answer to your call and then the client solicite the type of service (talk with other farms or talk directly to a common cellphone), then the central OP ask you the cell number that you want to call or the callsign of the farm that you need to link, you wait while the company link you to the other farm/cellphone, after that you are allowed to talk with the other person.

I'm not beeing very exact but in the follow link you'll find a lot of information (in spanish): http://arieldx.tripod.com/manualdx/variantes/utilitarios/telrural.htm

If you have problems for understand what the google translation says just send me a message with your questions.

I've noticed the same phenomenon when I hear this phonepatch transmission, I always hear them on the same frequency at the same time, is very rare because duplex systems work in two different frequencies like normal cellphones. However... generally this transmissions comes from isolated argentineana cattle ranches, the distances between farms are so large that the name "villageradio" is not applicable due to the geographical extension that separates these farms. They call it "terrestrial rural radiotelephone service (RRTS)".
