6.888.8 MHz USB 6888.8 kHz USB - via Montana remote receiver (KiwiSDR).

6888.8 kHz! The peskies have made another interesting frequency choice...that is, going along with the theory that they like to use "cute" or "easy to remember" frequencies (see 15151.5 kHz, 6789 kHz, 6868 kHz, etc etc)  Initially tuned into 6890 kHz LSB, then realized I was on the wrong side band mode, flipped down to 6889 kHz USB and then figured it out.  Sounds like freebanders to me.  Talking about radio equipment and other CB-like (or HF SSB ham radio like, if you prefer) chatter. Reminds me of the usual nets heard on frequencies like 6900 kHz.  No locations heard yet.  Accents are different though, perhaps coming from South America?  That, or these guys are actually fishermen who are also interested in radio.  Way too much QRN at the moment to really listen to the QSO to find out more.
