Any mention of fishing or boat-related matters?  Could be freebanders or out of band ham operators.  The frequency choice (5555 kHz) is popular with both freebanders/outbanders and fishing fleets.  They like easy to remember frequencies (for example, 6666.6 kHz USB is very popular with Latin American freebanders).
U.S. East Coast, various HF/VHF/UHF radios/transceivers/scanners/receivers - land mobile system operator - focus on VHF/UHF and 11m
