Yachtman's Net 8146 kHz USB 2235 UTC 8 Feb 2019

Two OMs talking with minor QRM, talking about charts and sat images of "deep water" and "at noon you can really see the deep dark water" "we tried that back in '13" - very good signals for both stations on the COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR.  Minor QRM from other marine traffic, presumably.  Propagation conditions to the Caribbean seem to be very favorable at the moment.

When propagation was good a few short years back I used to hear the Cruiseheimers Net on 8.146MHz USB covering the Caribbean region, and also the Doo Dah Net on the same frequency also in that region. ;)

Yaesu FT-2000D, ICOM IC-736 HF/50MHz, ICOM IC R75 & Tecsun S-2000 to 450 feet of wire, and a multi band vertical of dubious reliability.

The Cruiseheimers are probably what I was hearing.  They have 4 MHz and 6 MHz marine band frequencies that are used on a regular basis as well.  I've also heard them on 4003 kHz USB when the super strong military data signal isn't occupying the frequency.
