Scandinavians 6230 USB 1830 UTC 10 Sept 2019
« on: September 10, 2019, 1842 UTC »
I'm hearing a back and forth between two males in a Scandinavian language, more likely to be Norwegian or Swedish than Finnish or Danish. This was heard on several German SDRs. Conversation completed by 1835 UTC.

There is data QRM in the background and at first I confused that as sounding like boat engine noise during a long transmission being made by one of the operators. However, after I started hearing back and forth between two operators and the the noise not changing during the back and forth, I realized that it was unrelated to the conversation.
Just somebody with a radio, a computer and a pair of headphones...

The ute might be 06227.6 STANAG4285 1200L, FUE (French Navy Radio) out of Brest, France.
Conveniently located near Vincennes Indiana.

It could be STANAG, I suppose. It didn't seem like "the usual STANAG" that I am used to but...who knows?
It could also be the French Navy testing a different mode on the same frequency.
