Found random talking and what sounded like recordings on 7200.0 kHz @19:30 UTC.
Is this a pirate station? Still trying to find my first

More "Hams Behaving Badly"

Pirates can be found in lots of places on shortwave, but here in the the USA mostly in the 6920-6960 kHz range, mostly in the evenings. But also sometimes in the day on weekends and even occasionally weekdays. The best way to hear one is to keep up with the posts here on the HFU, which are usually in real time. Or join us on the HFU RocketChat.

This has gone on for years now with the same actors. The shiny surface to it is it concentrates the miscreants in a single 3Kc slice of spectrum, however there's at least one miscreant freq on each band so the miscreants can follow the propagation.
Conveniently located near Vincennes Indiana.

 8) Outside of FCC outing pirates off who are not interfering with anyone, Smith at FCC targeting people who are just having fun and properly Iding has caused me to now go totally for putting these unaccountable people out of FCC. You can not discipline these people. I have tried. Nobody listens. The sad truth is HR is a bore and these folks have just taken it into uncharted waters. IMHO

I hope it doesn't last as long as the "AM vs. SSB Wars"? They've been at it for over 60 years at the top of the bands.

It was sort of fun to listen to their banter, and even at times they where playing full length songs. What I found interesting, there was no gap in transmitting for over 30minutes. The later made me think (1)Pirate (2)someone just have fun or (3) someone was trying to keep the station occupied.

Thank you for the replays
