MARS ops on 6845U & 4458U
« on: May 19, 2012, 0021 UTC »
Just tuned in to a MARS net on 6845 kHz USB at 0000 UTC. Looks like 6840-6850 kHz should be avoided by pirates. While they were on, a few of them jumped down to 4458 kHz USB for an antenna test. I don't think that anyone's using 44XX kHz period, but I thought I'd mention it anyway.

I heard the MARS net operating on 6845 last Friday evening.  I made a note then on the details which I can't seem to find at the moment (sigh).  Yep, it looks like a place to avoid for now...
