Best Guess: Fishing Fleet Radio Fishery Radio Two-Way 2-way comms chatter Marine SSB Communications "pescadores"

Hearing the usual peskies moved up in frequency this evening, probably due to the super strong (and super annoying) over the horizon radar QRM from roughly 6900 kHz to 6935 kHz or 6.9 MHz to 6.935 MHz.  6925 kHz (generally home to both pirates and peskies) has been quiet due to the heavy OTH Radar interference.  At least one pirate station moved down below 6.9 MHz / 6900 kHz for their broadcast to escape the heavy QRM from the over the horizon radar pulses.
