VHF low band has been going nuts the past weeks. 

This afternoon I was tuning around and on 36.6000 FM - 36.600 MHz FM I heard a Morse ID “YSD” followed by a long tone burst.  Sounded like a VOR or aircraft navigation beacon like a NDB.  36.600MHz YSD Radio Beacon - 36.6 YSD Beacon CYSD CFB Suffield Heliport, Alberta Canada at Canadian Forces Base Suffield.  This is a first for me. 

1872 miles (3013 km) from receiver location in Richmond Virginia, USA. 

Transmitter coordinates GPS lat/long

N50°16.00' / W111°11.00'

50.276359,-111.180189

I wanted to post this here in case other folks come across this recorded CW and tone on 36.600 MHz FM while tuning around the bands.  It as a Morse recording on a FM signal, not AM like most VHF aircraft beacons…also the frequency choice is within the military 30-88 MHz band, which makes sense for that application (and makes sense for it to be in FM mode).

I’ve managed to catch a polytone signal (sounds a lot like ROS) on 31.325 and 31.975. 

Apparently these are traffic signal (traffic light) control signals from France. Very low power.  Pretty decent catch during VHF low band opening. 

12
Confirmed via the great folks at the RadioReference skip/tropospheric ducting forum - I am now able to confirm a signal that I'm hearing every time the band is open - 32.180 MHz FM with 77.0 Hz CTCSS.  Spanish language taxi dispatch lady YL dispatcher.


32.1800 MHz FM - 77.0 Hz - Alajuela, Costa Rica Taxi Dispatch - confirmed use
32.1800 MHz FM - 141.3 Hz - Alajuela, Costa Rica Taxi Dispatch - confirmed use

Also 31.2000 MHz FM - 203.5 Hz - Spanish speaking taxi dispatcher - apparently this frequency/tone/user has been logged since at least 1988.  31.200 MHz FM 203.5Hz is still active, I last heard it myself a couple days ago - the same time that 32.180 MHz was coming in very strongly and the 27.5-39.5 MHz Dedicated Fisheries Radio VHF low fishing fleet chatter out of Asia was coming in on 29.775 MHz FM, 30.300 MHz FM, 30.775 MHz FM, 30.900 MHz FM, 31.100 MHz FM, 31.800 MHz FM and other frequencies. 

I did some more searching, and a lot of folks have monitored these comms, including on 29.875 MHz FM, and numerous additional frequencies in the 30-35 MHz portion especially, all with the 25 kHz channel steps, and never with a CTCSS or DCS tone/code.

13
26765 AM - 26.765 MHz AM is coming in almost daily now, same with 27755 AM - 27.755 MHz AM.  Both of these are confirmed taxi dispatch frequencies for Matamoros Mexico.

Also frequencies

26905 AM - 26.905 MHz AM - Taxi dispatch - Mexico City (Mexico, D.F.)
27765 AM - 27.765 MHz AM - Taxi dispatch - Mexico City (Mexico, D.F.)
27775 AM - 27.775 MHz AM - Taxi dispatch - Mexico City (Mexico, D.F.)
27785 AM - 27.785 MHz AM - Taxi dispatch - Mexico City (Mexico, D.F.)
27815 AM - 27.815 MHz AM - Taxi dispatch - Mexico City (Mexico, D.F.)

Among many others, I'm sure.  27.785 MHz is an interesting one, since it's only 3.75 kHz away from UK FM CB channel 19, which is 27.78125 MHz (or 27.781 MHz, or 27.781.25 MHz or 27781 FM 27781.25 FM...).  The other day I actually heard the taxi dispatch lady on 27.785 MHz AM mixing with UK FM CB signals on 27.781 MHz FM!

10/11 meters / 11m Band Activity 30 DEC 2022
« on: December 30, 2022, 1311 UTC »
Checking the eastern and central European SDRs this morning, along with East Coast USA SDRs, looks like Latin American chatter is already starting to pop up on the usual in-band channels.

On Polish and German SDRs, noting POCSAG pager activity on 26.500 MHz, 26.550 MHz, 26.600 MHz, 26.650 MHz, 26.695 MHz, 26.700 MHz, 26.745 MHz, 26.750 MHz, 26.800 MHz, 26.900 MHz, 26.940 MHz, 26.945 MHz, 26.950 MHz, 26.955 MHz, 27.300 MHz, 27.350 MHz, 27.450 MHz and 27.845 MHz and offset frequency 27.847 MHz / 27.848 MHz as well as 27.850 MHz.

10/11 meters / 11m Band Activity 29 DEC 2022
« on: December 29, 2022, 1325 UTC »
Noting some FM voice on 27275 (CB Channel 27) and 27295 (CB Channel 29).

Also the usual Latin American frequencies are starting to light up, including


26525 LSB 26.525 MHz LSB - alternate frequency (likely stations that QSY'ed from 26.555 LSB)
26555 LSB 26.555 MHz LSB - SSB calling (low channels)
26585 AM 26.585 MHz AM - Mexico
27065 AM 27.065 MHz AM - Very big signals (CB Channel 9)
27455 USB 27.455 MHz USB - SSB calling (high channels)

Some very faint POCSAG paging signals noted on 26.695 MHz. 

The usual FSK bursts on 27.255 MHz RCRS channel / CB Channel 23

Nothing on 27.195 (yet) but I imagine the MFSK multi-frequency data signal will show up there as well.
