El Buen Pescador (tent): 8989U, 2/19, 2220+
« on: February 20, 2013, 1528 UTC »
I've read logs of El Buen Pescador (The Good Fisherman) here. He's apparently a regular on this freq in this general timeframe. He's reportedly a fisherman from Nicaragua, who broadcasts to other other fishermen.

I don't know the stations on this frequency well enough to know who operates here. Fair signal with man talking in Spanish and also a number of songs. Sounds more like a Latin American version of a pirate than a licensed broadcast station. The songs were mostly ballads & lasted from about 2221-2232 UTC. Without an ID or more knowledge of this group, I don't know if it was El Buen Pescador or another guy from the group doing some broadcasting. Occasional loud adjacent-channel QRM--not sure if this was from aircraft (didn't check them out) ?

Please QSL to: POB 109, BRS, PA 17214
