That's a pretty thin description, but I suspect you were listening to MWARA stations. The links for that, and more, are here (anything in blue is a link...)

HF Aeronautical Communications - The RadioReference Wiki

Don't tune so fast. Take your time - and understand a bit about how propagation is affecting you. You'll quickly learn what freqs might be active vs. ones that are likely to be closed to your location.

best regards...Mike

San Francisco Radio uses 8843 kHz USB. You can also hear them on 5547, 5574, 6673, 10057, 11282 and 13354 in the Central East Pacific. They are all used in a daily basis and will have excellent signals into Oxnard.

In the North Pacific I've noticed San Francisco using 8951 and 5628 recently.
