OM talking about his fishing catch and other typical sailor talk.  Heard via COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR.  Considering the monster SW broadcast signal on 9350 kHz, these guys are just outside the outer edge of the sideband splatter characteristic of a very powerful shortwave signal.  Pretty smart actually.  Compared to their compadres in the 8 MHz and lower edge of 9 MHz these guys are a lot harder to find.  Reminds of the Gloustermen using 6095 kHz and hiding in the 49 meter broadcast band.
