Is this just some civilian sailors talking on HF marine rigs? Any theory on the odd number and letter schemes? Thanks

11175 kHz USB is used by the US Air Force as part of their Global Communications System (HF-GCS).  Other frequencies used as part of this system include 4742 kHz USB, 6712 kHz USB, 6739 kHz USB, 8992 kHz USB, 13200 kHz USB and 15016 kHz USB.  11175 USB is the most active of these frequencies.  There are dozens of other "discrete" frequencies that are also part of the system.  11175 USB is used for Emergency Action Messages (EAMs) and other military communications in USB voice.

So short answer, no, its not fishermen, although they are found all over HF.  It's the US military.  The letter and number scheme are encrypted messages using a One-Time-Pad (OTP) encryption technique to send secure messages to military assets.

Thanks R4002. I'm familiar with numbers stations. Hadn't heard of this before now. The tone just seemed very laid back and not very professional compared to other more computer generated even toned voices. Wonder why Ive never seen this in the Spy numbers category?

I can certainly see the argument for putting it in the Spy Numbers section.  However, since 11175 USB (and the other HF-GCS frequencies) are used for two-way communications, telephone patches and other military voice communications its considered a utility network and not a spy numbers station. 

The operators on the HF-GCS will sometimes do some very entertaining things.  They are professionals, though.

On-going EAM at 1744 UTC with female operator on 11175 kHz USB.  Good signal on 13200 USB with some echo or long-path QRM.

EIMIHJZS2FC7AX3VP3KTGTMJW5S7JI THIS IS BLUEPRINT OUT at 1746 UTC.

At 1747 UTC, BLUEPRINT (same YL op) came back on with another ALL STATIONS, ALL STATIONS call, same echo/reverb-like QRM in the background (probably due to multipath).

At 1748 UTC, checked 13200 kHz USB and 15016 kHz USB, SIO 444 signals on those two frequencies as well, both exhibit minor multipath/echo QRM but the message is 100% readable.

6712 kHz USB is quiet, can hear something very faint on 6739 kHz USB, nothing on 4724 kHz USB and 8992 has a strong data signal on it with the EAM underneath (???)

At 1750 UTC, now male operator "message of 41 characters follows" (I missed the callsign while changing freqs)

Switched back up to 15016 USB at 1751 UTC (15016 kHz seems to have the best signal at the moment)

"Disregard this transmission, this is BLUEPRINT, out" at 1751 UTC.

1752 UTC - a second OM operator "All stations, all stations, this is BLUEPRINT, standby" into authentication sequence then alphanumeric message (on-going at 1753 UTC).  At 1754 UTC "This is BLUEPRINT, out"
