Do you have a language, time in UTC and mode?  On 6.661MHz USB I hear airline traffic from India and other parts of Asia.  So being on 6.664MHz are very close to aircraft channels.

The language may be the key to solving this one and the time you heard it in UTC.

The 4-10MHz section of HF is populated by illegal stations in this region, especially from Indonesia, Philippines, China and Burma etc.  The Indonesian offenders are illegal "village radio" CB style stations.

All probably intermingled with illegal fishing vessels too. :o

In the interim, will have a listen there from time to time... 8)

6.665MHz  USB  Indonesian chatter, one station located Bandah Aceh, 5x3 report 1015z.  2 X Indonesian stations chatting on 6.663MHz LSB, village radio pirates 5X3 report 1106z, one male and one female chatting.

Nothing of note exactly on 6.664MHz... :D

Apparently isis supporters in Indonesia are supporting jihad in the Phillipines, perhaps some clandestine isis comms are being carried on.

There are literally hundreds of Indonesian and Philippine stations on LSB and USB between 4 and 10MHz, unless you have a sound command of Bhasa Indonesian or Tagalog we are none the wiser on what they are talking about.

Not forgetting the regional dialects as Bhasa Indonesian is the national language as is Tagalog in the Philippines.  Regional dialects often bare no relationship to the national language.

Similar to India where they are around six prominent regional languages and untold regional dialects but English unites the country. ;)
