Gander in Canada (MWARA NAT-F) uses this frequency for aviation traffic, as too Shannon (Shanwick Aeradio) in Ireland (MWARA NAT-F) plus Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea in my area.  If you go to the MWARA listings for HF I think you will find there are others around the world using 6.622MHz too. ;)

Yaesu FT-1000D, Yaesu FT-2000D, ICOM IC-736 HF/50MHz, ICOM IC R75 & Tecsun S-2000 to 450 feet of wire, 27MHz 1/2 wave CB antenna converted to 21MHz & a multi band vertical of dubious reliability.

Thanks myteaquinn, and Looking-Glass, for the info. They said "QSY to 2899" couldn't hear them, or find them anywhere after that.
