UNID Portuguese Language 6935 kHz LSB 2115 UTC 27 2018
« on: January 27, 2018, 2120 UTC »
Frequency: 6935 kHz 6.935 MHz
Mode: LSB
Language: Portuguese (probably Brazilian fishermen talking to each other, fishing fleet communications, fishery radio, etc)
Location: Somewhere in the Atlantic, I would presume
ID:  unknown, unlicensed (the actual 6 MHz marine band is 6200 kHz to 6525 kHz, and is usually just as busy as the 6765 kHz to 7000 kHz fixed mobile band...).  Yes, these operators are also heard in the 6 MHz areonautical band / aircraft band, which lies between 6525 and 6765 kHz per ITU regulations...

Portuguese speaking fishing boat communications fishery radio nets on HF.  These guys are popping up on the band earlier and earlier in the evening.  6935 LSB is becoming a very popular frequency for them.  For a while time it was 6933 LSB (of course 6925 LSB and 6919 LSB are the main ones, for whatever reason).  Would be nice to see them move off 6925. 

SIO 222 at best, although its still early in the evening.  I have a feeling there will be a lot more of these logs tonight.
