Via G8JNJ SDR receiver.  29875 FM [CSQ].  Carrier squelch, no CTCSS (PL) or DCS (DPL) in use.  CSQ. 

Very strong signals, sounds like Japanese language chatter on 29.875MHz.  One of the more active Asian fishery frequencies, 29.875 is Channel 100 on the 480 channel 27.500 MHz - 39.475 MHz [25 kHz steps, sequential channel numbering) radios.  29.825 MHz, 29.900 MHz, 29.925 MHz, 30.025 MHz, 29.775 MHz, 29.750 MHz and many others are also very popular.  29.825 MHz and 29.875 MHz are both in the "top 10" both locally for me here on the East Coast of the USA and via remote receivers located in the UK and mainland Europe.  One of the characteristics of these systems is the use of 25 kHz or 12.5 kHz spacing frequencies and carrier squelch. 

U.S. East Coast, various HF/VHF/UHF radios/transceivers/scanners/receivers - land mobile system operator - focus on VHF/UHF and 11m
