Two ops in a QSO, one much stronger than the other. The one I can easily here sounds like he's from New England?

They were well received here also at 2157 UTC tune in, although one was louder than the other until a few minutes before they QRT'd at 2208 UTC. Not much talk of shrimping, but plenty of F-bombs and one of them mentioned about going hunting in New York soon. I wonder if the peskie conversations are similar in content 8)

Back on this Sunday morning when I tuned in at 1242 UTC with the same ops chatting about fishing, their boats, life, and other things interspersed with plenty of profanity....a pair of true salty dogs we have here! Fascinating to listen to this. From the conversation I could glean that they were fisherman and not shrimpers. Mentioned something about maybe having a big "shebang" at Jones Beach in South Dartmouth, so definitely New Englanders....QRT'd at 1258 UTC
