UNID Spanish Language 4101 USB 0700 UTC 19 Feb 2018
« on: February 19, 2018, 1609 UTC »
I was hoping to log some SW desert beacons from my NE US QTH, and heard an ongoing net between at least 2 or 3 stations. I have heard many Peskies in the typical 6900-7000 kHz range, but this is the first time I have heard voice traffic on this frequency.

I have heard Peskies a little higher in the 4 MHz range in the past though.

It was unusual in that it was in USB as well. The transmissions were quite faint here. I checked several online KiwiSDR, and found the reception was stronger in the Midwest, and especially strong on Tokenís SDR in California, and the Kiwi in Arizona, which leads me to believe they may have been located in Mexico.
Location: Upstate New York (Southern Tier) Grid FN12
SDRs: RSP1A, ANAN 10E, Airspy R2, Airspy HF+
Analog Receiver: Drake R8B
Antennas: 80 meter dipole, Wellbrook AL1530LN Loop
