Via Westminster, MD KiwiSDR.  Two truckers talking about trucking-related topics, buying fuel, several mentions of "rollbacks".  "I'm going back to Waynesboro." "Tell nobody" at 2115 UTC.  "95 bucks".  Both have roger beeps and have good modulation.  Noted fading but readable.  The band might be waking up a bit....now (at 2116 UTC) I'm seeing and hearing AM voice traffic on 27.505 MHz, 27.565 MHz, 27.575 MHz, 27.755 MHz...with some SSB popping up too around 27.5 MHz to 27.6 MHz.

10/11 meters / 11 meters is active 2100 UTC 18 July 2019
« on: July 18, 2019, 2114 UTC »

26715 AM - 26.715 MHz AM is very busy at the moment (2110 UTC) as I type this, hearing OMs on top of each other...ONE TWO ONE TWO ONE TWO and a couple other English words, but mostly Spanish, as to be expected on 26.715 AM.

At 2112 UTC, hearing an OM talking about buying gas on 27.665 MHz AM.  Now, another station replying to him.  Both stations have roger beeps.  Mention of "rollback" as well.  I'm pretty sure these stations are truckers talking on 27.665 MHz AM.  At 2113 UTC, AM voice (also truckers) noted on 27.575 MHz. 

The two stations on 27665 AM are on 27664.9 and 27664.4.  Good thing they're running AM and not SSB! 

26.905 MHz and 26.915 MHz have some activity on them as well.  The legal 40 CB channels have lots of activity as well.  All appear to be domestic US stations.  As to be expected, 27.025 MHz, 27.085 MHz, 27.265 MHz and 27.285 MHz are all wall-to-wall with AM voice DX activity.  27.385 MHz LSB are also active.

From this morning, roughly 0645 to 0655 local time (US east coast), I was able to hear activity on all 7 NOAA Weather Radio NOAA WX frequencies, with all except the local station having multiple signals at once.  162.400 and 162.550 seemed to have three stations going at various points.   The band does appear to be open to one degree or another every morning, but this morning was an extreme example.

With the tell-tale insanely awesome big bandwidth and audio.

6930.2 kHz AM

Carrier came on shortly after WREC signed off

Dead carrier for about 10 minutes, then SSTV at 2152 UTC, another SSTV at 2154 UTC

Off at 2201?

6545.4 kHz sounds too high, 6545.3 sounds too low, but 6545.4 makes more sense.  Portuguese chatter heard this afternoon via the Westminster, MD KiwiSDR.

10/11 meters / 11 meters is active 1715 UTC 12 July 2019
« on: July 12, 2019, 1756 UTC »
Posting this a little late but during my lunch break I heard some skip activity on the legal 40 CB channels, of course channel 6 (27.025 MHz) was busy, as well as several others.  Channel 38 LSB - 27.385 MHz LSB was also active.  Likely more sporadic-E propagation enhancement.  According to DXMaps.com, both 10 meters and 6 meters are active on the US East Coast with E-skip activity, so it would make sense for 11 meters to be open too.

10/11 meters / 27.300 MHz LSB 27300 LSB 2101 UTC 10 July 2019
« on: July 10, 2019, 2103 UTC »
Two OMs chatting in between channels 29 and 30 (27.295 MHz and 27.305 MHz respectively).  One of those secret channels, 27.300 MHz.

"you've done well, my friend" heard at 2101 UTC.  Weak signals, but they're definitely there.  LSB mode.  Heard on COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR on the CT/MA border.

« on: July 10, 2019, 2058 UTC »
Via COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR, from 2045 UTC to 2055 UTC (1645 to 1655 local time)

26.065 MHz AM - two OMs talking, "nearing 100 mile there" "closer to the city" - sound like truckers, southern accents
26.105 MHz AM - similar traffic to traffic heard the other day, truckers or similar traffic
26.405 MHz AM - weak AM carriers fading in and out
26.565 MHz AM - OM doing radio checks
26.775 MHz AM - southern-accented OMs
26.885 MHz AM - similar to 26.915 MHz AM, heard the frequency referred to as "885"
26.905 MHz AM - central US stations heard, Illinois mentioned
26.915 MHz AM - very busy, several stations talking at once, heard a station ID'ed as "Jailbird"

not all 40 legal CB channels were active, the usual AM and SSB activity centers were busy, including 27.385 LSB

27.465 MHz LSB - active with DXing stations, general rag-chewing
27.575 MHz AM - "you going down to where? 700?" "you must have lots of spray"

Not as busy as it was yesterday, but still a considerable amount of DX rolling in this afternoon

Hearing two truckers chatting on 26.405 MHz AM / 26405 kHz AM, both with good signals.  Talking about trucking related topics (company drama, weigh scales, several mentions of "Toledo" and "75" - presuming that's a reference to I-75 or route 75).  At one point it became clear the two operators were within eyesight of each other, likely a "company channel" or "side channel" used by truckers from a particular location or company...several other 26 MHz frequencies are waking up early this afternoon.  Hearing two OMs chatting on 25.925 MHz AM / 25925 kHz AM, both of them seem to be local to each other as well.

Foul-mouthed Spanish speaking fishermen (or freebanders, both, I suppose) on oddball frequency 9161.3 kHz 9.161.3 MHz USB 9161.3 USB.  At least two different stations involved, all the usual Spanish language curse words heard.
