These are not radio amateurs, or ham radio operators, and this is not in the 160 meter band.  The amateur 160 meter band runs from 1800 kHz to 2000 kHz.

I'm guessing these are outbanders of some sort? Not hams, as 2200 kHz is outside the 160 meter band.

2200 kHz is inside no specifically designated band, it is between the ham 160 meter band (1800 kHz to 2000 kHz) and the tropical broadcast 120 meter band (2300 kHz to 2495 kHz).  It is within the Maritime Mobile allocation though, and there is a designated maritime channel on 2203 kHz.  It is possible it is maritime traffic, maybe fishing vessels.
