Like the stations heard in the 6200 kHz to 6525 kHz range, at least these stations are operating within one of the HF marine bands (specifically the 8 MHz portion 8195 kHz to 8815 kHz).  Of course they're ignoring channelization but that's being nit-picky. 

I bet these guys show up in the amateur bands from time to time as well.  They've been logged in the broadcast bands, they've been logged in the fixed/mobile sections, they been logged in the HF aircraft bands...and they've been logged where they belong in the maritime bands.
