I have logged 6771.5 kHz USB several times, but 6771 kHz seems like a new one.  Two stations having a QSO, possibly a husband and wife talking, which would support the radiotelephone link (RRTS, Rural Radiotelephone Service, used in South America) theory.  Pretty tame conversation, no salty sailor talk which would indicate that I'm not hearing the usual pescadores or fishing fleet communications.

Heard on the COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR on the CT/MA border.  Lots and lots of activity on the 6-10 MHz region this evening.  I imagine that the lower frequencies will light up too.
