English Speaking Maritime 6212 USB 1203 23AUG2019
« on: August 23, 2019, 1214 UTC »
Hearing one half of a conversation.  This frequency is allocated for simplex use on the Mississippi River, but with that small an area, I would expect to hear both sides.

1203 OM - "Yeah, I didn't realize I left mine at home."
1204 OM "No big deal.  I found another one."

Did they have New England / Boston accents? 

6212 kHz USB is technically assigned for duplex use per the ITU "recommended" HF SSB marine channeling plan...but its often used for simplex traffic. 
U.S. East Coast, various HF/VHF/UHF radios/scanners/receivers
