12302 kHz USB Spanish Language 1325 UTC 27 Oct 2018
« on: October 27, 2018, 1327 UTC »
12302 kHz 12.302 MHz USB

These guys are just below the bottom edge of the 12 MHz marine band...and they may very well be marine operators, lots and lots of Spanish language "salty language" and the tell-tale "cambio" (sounds like "gambio", which means "over" or "back to you").  S3 signal at best, the sailboats on 12350 USB are much stronger (also heard on Chris' SDR in Westminster, MD).  Talking about money...

1326 UTC - Still chatting away at
1327 UTC - "hola! hola! hola!" (perhaps another station checking into the "net")
1328 UTC - "4000 right?" "okay" "no, 4000" "okay okay"
1329 UTC - more general chatter continues
1330 UTC - "Quito!" and then some whistling into the mic
1337 UTC - tuned back to 12302 USB and they're still chatting, signals are somewhat weaker than before
