17:05 USB Noticed USB traffic on ~6903.5
I recorded the last 10 mis of their conversation.
They were attempting to sent up a message net.
Talk about setting up the software to send and receive message's
Talk about liking this frequency for daytime use, leaving it set up for today.
I don't have decoding software yet but it looked something like at SSTV stream?
Chat session ended at 17:17 utc - with Alfa Zero Alfa this is Alfa Alfa Zero Zero KIlo Mike the out but have left the net running.
Just recorded more digtal streams at 17:51 utc & 17:55 utc & 17:57 utc

I'l go back and listen to the recording later  - There was some reference to equipment and software.

Sounds like MARS to me.  And I am pretty sure they have used that freq before.

Thanks Token.
I just noticed a post about this MARS net from Chris & Andrew about 4 slots under this one from 12-29-12.  :-[
I had to look up what MARS meant - Interesting.

I've just started looking into and have downloaded some Freeware decoding software for CW & SSTV . I only just leared that all you need is the audio of the signal for CW & SStv decoding. I'm also interested in not so freeware but I'm in the  learning process of understanding what I'm looking for. There is a surplus of equipment around here, running XP Vista and 7 as well as Mint & Ubuntu Linux.  I don't happen to have a Max box or clone at this time but I have used them before as well. IN other words No operatingsystemitis around here.. I should post this in Equipment.
