6978 kHz USB UNID Unknown Language 1 May 2017
« on: May 02, 2017, 0000 UTC »
Very weak SSB traffic noticed on 6978 kHz / 6.978 MHz USB mode just before the 0000 UTC mark.  As with other logs this evening, heavy thunderstorm QRN all over the band.  90% sure its Portuguese as far as the language goes but it could be Spanish...the frequency and mode don't help with the ID this time (as both groups seem to have discovered the USB mode recently...and a nearby log on 6972 kHz USB was Portuguese, however many nearby frequencies using both USB and LSB have been logged in the Spanish language.

So, with that in mind, I'll leave the language part as unknown.

Nothing heard since 2359 UTC.  Possibly lost in the thunderstorm static crashes  :-\
