A broadcast that's in Morse that's being listened in CA, USA

Actually it seemed like there's a cluster of Morse

647 to 6480

Is this HAM operators?

Good find. That is KPH, recently back on the air. They are sending VVV and CQ de KPH. Not real strong here in SE Fla. ON 6477.5 tonight but able to copy with QSB.
See radiomaring.org (and subscribe to their newsletter if interested)

From the website:

KPH Returns Home!

The return of KPH to the airwaves on Saturday 8 October was a great success.  Senior KPH Morse operator Ray Smith sent the last message from Bolinas/Point Reyes on 30 July 1997.  He was there with us on Saturday to sit in his same operating position and send the message announcing the return of KPH to service.

KPH will be on the air every Saturday and Sunday so be sure to listen on our new frequencies:

4247.0
6477.5
8642.0
12808.5
17016.8
22477.5

Edit to add: They are much stronger here on 8642. Per the transmission they are on
4/6/8/12/16/22 this evening. I haven't checked the other frequencies yet.
Another edit: Only copy on 6/8/12, no copy on 4/17/22. Fits with the time of day. Still daylight out there.
