Portuguese speaking fishing fleets pescadores peskies 6.888 MHz USB 6888 kHz USB June 6th, 2017.

Hearing some busy peskie chatter (sounds like Portuguese Language) on 6888 kHz USB, pretty standard, almost "frantic" sounding chatter with some strong data burst QRM that seems to be on exactly the same frequency at times drowning the voice communications out completely.  Lots of storm static QRN as well but nothing too crazy at the moment.  SIO 222 or so due to the ute data QRM and the thunderstorm lightning static crash noise QRN.
