6972 kHz USB UNID Portuguese Chatter 1 May 2017
« on: May 01, 2017, 2356 UTC »
6972 kHz USB heavy static crashes due to heavy local (and distant!) thunderstorm and lightning activity.  Portuguese chatter heard 6972 kHz 6.972 MHz USB mode.  SIO 111 to SIO 222 at best due to the heavy lightning QRN static crashes.  I've noticed increased use of USB mode by pescadore fishing fleet radio nets in the 6-7 MHz region lately.
