Distorted talking on 8764 USB 1717z 2-1-14
« on: February 01, 2014, 1719 UTC »
Hearing some strong distorted talking with engine sounds in the background. Military? Most likely, but just as I'm typing this it shuts off. I'll stick to the radio and see if it returns. Thing is I can't tell if its in english or not. It sounded like it was, but it was so distorted I couldn't tell.

Just came back on at 1719. Now I'm hearing what sounds like it's a weather report. Hearing the words "35 knots, seas something something feet". So it's definetley weather report. Can't tell why it sounds like a big- rig engine in the background, and that the voice is distorted (sounds like the guy is too close to the mic).
