The high bands are open today with some good signals:

0500z  22.606.5MHz  CW  "CQ CQ CQ de JFG K" Shizouka Fisheries Radio, Shizuoka, Japan 529 report.

The Japanese fisheries radio starts off with a standard preamble then goes to major weather reports, traffic list and then stand by for check ins.

Each frequency is shared with around three different stations per channel transmitting to different skeds.
