4030 kHz USB HF-SSB Marine Chatter - 2300 UTC 6 Dec 2017
« on: December 06, 2017, 2302 UTC »
Hearing one side of a maritime mobile HF radio QSO on 4030 kHz USB at 2300 UTC.   OM talking about having "way too much gear".  Music can be heard playing in the background.  Very informal.  Talking about plans for the holidays.  Occasional profanity.  Not hearing the other side of the conversation.  The 4000 kHz to 4063 kHz sub-band is supposed to be simplex only so its likely that propagation isn't working with me 100%. 

At 2302 UTC, OM asked other station if he was going to be "hanging out here tonight" or was going to going elsewhere.  Signed off shortly after, still at 2302 UTC, but requested other station to "meet me back up here later, good luck".
