Strange things happening in pescadora land...heard what was definitely opera music...switched to LSB and damned if what sounded like Enrico Caruso with a solid S8 signal. I tuned in just before 0049 and it was off abrupt just after 0051. Peskies playing radio, or someone playing with the peskies? Either way, nobody's catching any fish...please QSL!

Yes, they seem to be having a good time...tune-in 2353 UTC and I can hear music playing and chatter. If these peskies are truly fisherman, on a boat, broadcasting music without a license, doesn't that make them true pirates? Can anyone that posts on HFU speak Spanish and understand what all the chatter is about from these so called pescadoras?
2304 UTC I can hear opera style music under all the noise and chatter.

They are pirates regardless of what they are broadcasting, no?  btw, I hear  non opera music on 6945 at 1:00z. Its a fairly common occurrence for these guys to play music isn't it?

In order for these guys to be true pirates they would have to stop & board other vessels & broadcast from them ;)

Has there ever been a pirate calling themselves "Walk the Plank" Radio or "Radio Scurvy Dog"?
