United States Coast Guard Communications Command NMG hurricane forecast at 1720 UTC reading the NHC hurricane forecast discussion word for word for Hurricane Oscar SIO 444 on 12.788 MHz 12788 kHz USB mode.  As is the norm with the USCG's HF-SSB weather broadcasts, there's a fair amount of splatter down onto the lower side. 

1722 UTC "POC SLASH SLASH COMMAND DUTY OFFICER SLASH L SLASH SLASH [telephone number]" and lots of alphanumerical ID information

scheduled transmission at 1715 UTC on 12788 kHz 12 MHz HF-SSB marine band.  Tried alternate frequency 8502 kHz USB at 1724 UTC and can barely hear the same voice down in the noise...tried 4316 kHz USB at 1725 UTC and got nothing at all...
