EE Boater's Net 4045 USB 2305 UTC 3 Feb 2020
« on: February 03, 2020, 2318 UTC »
Listening to SIgnaSDR. Talk from several ops about fishing, English language. Very clean, definitely not the Angry Bahstads, Signals are averaging S7- S8. No callsigns or nicknames were heard.  Net stayed active until about 00UTC with check ins heard from as far as Hawaii. Subjects covered everything from solar popcorn, a machine for restoring Coral reefs and fishing.

Nice catch - there's several of these nets to be found in the 4 MHz range (4000 kHz - 4438 kHz is the marine band).  I've heard yachts in the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico chatting away on 4003 kHz USB several times in the past (when that super strong FSK data link signal isn't on the same frequency).  I've heard what sounded like the same group on 4012 kHz USB and a couple others, including 4045 kHz. 

4 MHz and 8 MHz are pretty popular for these nets...I wanna say 8152 kHz is another popular one, but there are several others.
