Tuned in via Polish KiwiSDR.  Noted activity on

2910 USB - Russian language
2920 USB - Russian language
2930 USB - Russian language
3070 LSB - Russian language (heavy QRM from AM signals on/near frequency)
3031 USB - Encrypted voice signals...with a carrier signal in between the transmissions, tuned in at 3031 USB mode...causing havoc with the 3030 kHz / 3033 kHz crowd

Note, the AM frequencies are seemingly random.  Stations having QSOs with each other are often several kHz apart.  Presumably, they're running equipment with analog frequency displays.


3010 AM - 3009 AM, 3011 AM, 3010.5, etc.
3023 AM
3033 AM - Real mess here, 3032 AM, 3033.3 kHz, 3034 kHz, 3035 LSB with carrier (AME mode, basically AM with the carrier and missing one side band)
3043 AM
3050 AM -
3062 AM - 3061.9 kHz and 3062 kHz, along with 3060 kHz (just a carrier?)
3065 AM - 3065.6 kHz, 3066 kHz, 3064.6 kHz, 3065 kHz, also 3061.9 kHz and 3062 kHz (probably a different group)
3070 AM - 3070 kHz, 3069 kHz
3077 AM - QRM city folks
3080 AM - Stations noted using 3079.2 kHz, 3079.6 kHz, 3081 kHz, 3078 kHz, 3078.9 kHz and 3079 kHz lots of QRM on/around here
3092 AM - 3092 kHz, 3093.1 kHz 3093 kHz
3110 AM - Stations using 3108.5 kHz, 3109.9 kHz, 3108 AM and 3108.5 AM both very good signals, also 3108.3 FMing between 3108.3 and 3108.6.  Another right on 3110.0 AM
3120 AM - almost as busy as the 3000 to 3100 kHz range, not nearly as off-frequency as other frequencies
3131 AM - maybe 3130 kHz is what they're shooting for
3162 AM

3312 AM - Hearing "Highway Star" by Deep Purple, really severe FMing - frequency now slowly increasing, perhaps as the transmitter warms up...was on 3313.1, ended up on 3314.2 at the beginning...then dropped frequency very rapidly..down to 3305 kHz at 1745 UTC...then back up to 3313 kHz (slowly increasing) with more Deep Purple

11 meters and 10 meters have been going nuts recently.  I wanted to share some of the "above 29.7 MHz" or above 30 MHz loggings:

29.780 MHz - 29780 kHz - FSK signal, noted during previous band openings
29.800 MHz - 29800 kHz - POCSAG pager - UK or European paging signals 29.8 MHz 29.80 FM
29.850 MHz - 29850 kHz - POCSAG pager - UK or European paging signals 29.85 MHz 29.85 FM
29.900 MHz - 29900 kHz - POCSAG pager - UK or European paging signals 29.9 MHz 29.90 FM
29.950 MHz - 29950 kHz - POCSAG pager - UK or European paging signals 29.95 MHz 29.95 FM
29.967 MHz - 29967 kHz - 29.996 MHz USB - FSK signal center frequency 29.997 MHz


30.000 MHz - 30.000 FM - POCSAG pager - unknown source/origin (heard on US KiwiSDRs, UK KiwiSDRs and locally)
30.020 MHz - 30.020 FM - POCSAG pager, noted on this frequency and on 30.025 MHz
30.025 MHz - 30.025 FM - Presumably the same source, offset frequency (that, or 30.02 MHz is the offset)
30.290 MHz or maybe 30.2875 MHz?  30.2875 - POCSAG Pager, heard on 14 October via N1NTE KiwiSDR
30.580 MHz - 30.580 FM - Construction / business comms
30.775 MHz - 30.775 FM - Weak FM signals...presumably military or non-US business users 30.775 FM
31.000 MHz - 31.000 FM - Spanish language, sounds like taxi cab dispatcher
31.100 MHz - 31.100 FM - Military comms, 31.1 FM - Canadian accents?
31.120 MHz - 31.120 FM - Van Pool Transportation (repeater system) 31.12 MHz FM
32.020 MHz - 32.020 FM - Paging signal, heard on my handheld scanner with 27 MHz CB antenna
32.025 MHz - 32.025 FM - Paging signal, probably the correct frequency (or offset, like 30.02 MHz and 30.025 MHz)
32.200 MHz - 32.200 FM - UNID Spanish language chatter, probably business land mobile activity

10/11 meters / Pager Signal on 30.000 MHz 30000 kHz - 12 October 2022
« on: October 12, 2022, 1438 UTC »
European paging systems previously logged on this frequency and on nearby frequencies - including 29.800 MHz, 29.850 MHz, 29.900 MHz, 29.950 MHz as well as 30.020 MHz and 30.025 MHz. 

POCSAG signal coming in nicely at 1435 UTC.  29750, 29800, 29850, 29900 and 29950 are quiet.  11 meters and 10 meters are both very busy though.

10/11 meters / 11 Meter Opening 12 Oct 2022
« on: October 12, 2022, 1435 UTC »
Lots of signals all over the band this morning, noting activity on several of the UK FM channels, plus 26 MHz pagers, FM voice, AM voice, data links, all sorts of stuff.

UK FM CB coming in nicely, including the "top channel" UK FM CB channel 40 - 27991 FM 27.991 MHz FM 27.99125 MHz.  Also noted a POCSAG paging signal on 27.885 MHz 27885 kHz, along with another dead unmodulated carrier on 27881 FM 27.88125 MHz FM (UK FM CB channel 29). 

Data signal, MFSK type, coming in on 27.845 MHz 27845 kHz..  I've logged a similar signal before, on slightly offset frequency 27.847 MHz 27847 kHz.

In addition to the UK and European signals, the Latin American stations are also coming in - including the 26585 AM and 26595 AM Mexican trucker and freeband CB 11m calling channels, 26555 LSB, 27455 USB and several others. 

Our taxi cab dispatch YL friends are around as well.  Hearing Spanish language on 26625 AM right now.  Lots of echo and sound effects. 

POCSAG signals on 26.695 MHz and 26.745 MHz starting to fade in.

27255 is going absolutely nuts.  Non-stop FSK bursts, AM voice signals, FM voice signals..  27.255 MHz back at it! 

ROS data mode coming in nicely on 27235, 27245 and 27635.  Very strong on 27635. 

UNID YL on UK FM CB Channel 7 - 27661 FM 27.66125 MHz FM...maybe a church broadcast?  CADS or WPAS?  Very difficult copy due to heavy QRM from 27.660 MHz USB and 27.665 MHz USB.  Sounds like she's reading something far away from the microphone?  Might be a church service or a recording of something.  Again, very difficult copy due to heavy QRM on 27660 USB and 27665 USB.

EDIT:  Yep, we've got a church service on 27661 FM at 1447 UTC, 1448 UTC (still going at 1454 UTC).  At 1453 UTC, the 27.660 MHz USB and 27.665 MHz USB QRM signals were improved upon by adding a 27.665 MHz LSB signal to the mix.  Now we've got some heavy QRM.  But, the 27.661 MHz signal (WPAS Channel LW07 FM UK FM Channel 7 27661.25 FM) church service is still coming in at 1456 UTC.  Now very very bad QRM (1456 UTC) completely drowned out the FM signal. 

UPDATE: By 1458 UTC, the church broadcast signal has faded down significantly...still there, but 27660 USB is just making it impossible. 

Taxi cab dispatcher (Spanish language) now coming in very strong on 27.755 MHz AM 27755 AM.  Previously logged female taxi dispatcher 27.755 AM.  Mexican taxi cab dispatch lady with multi-tone burst "roger beep" (end of transmission tone burst).  Z

UK FM CB Channel 19 is, to be expected, very very busy.  Lots of activity on there and basically from 26-28 MHz.  Also a nice strong signal on 25950 FM 25.950 MHz FM - likely the WBAP-AM studio-transmitter link (STL).  Previously logged during band openings, along with 25910 FM and 25990 FM. 

Pager or signal data link signal coming in still on 30.000 MHz.  Also works if you tune it in at 29997 USB 29.997 MHz USB.

29.800 MHz - 29800 kHz - POCSAG
29.850 MHz - 29850 kHz - POCSAG
29.900 MHz - 29900 kHz - POCSAG (weak, but fading up...and then back down)
30.000 MHz - 30000 kHz - Paging signal of some type

10/11 meters / 11 Meter Opening 11 Oct 2022
« on: October 11, 2022, 1220 UTC »
Tuned in at 1215 UTC (via W3HFU KiwiSDR)

Noted lots of Latin American stations coming in already, on

26525 AM
26555 LSB
26585 AM
26605 AM
27455 USB
27475 USB

26450 kHz 26.450 MHz Pager
26695 kHz 26.695 MHz Pager
26745 kHz 26.745 MHz Pager

No obvious UK FM CB signals yet, although the 27410 to 28000 "high band" is full of SSB signals and a few AM signals as well

At 1221 UTC, the Italians are starting to come in nicely on 27465 27.465 MHz AM "Canale 45"

1223 UTC - I stand corrected - UK FM CB coming in now too. 

UK FM CB activity on

27651 FM 27.65125 MHz FM - UK FM CB Channel 6

27971 FM 27.97125 MHz FM - UK FM CB Channel 38
27981 FM 27.98125 MHz FM - UK FM CB Channel 39

And others now.  27.651 FM and 27.661 FM are both getting clobbered by SSB signals on/near frequency (27.650 USB, 27.660 USB, 27.665 LSB, etc.)

Checking the 29700 to 30000 29.7 MHz to 30.0 MHz band for freebanders and paging/data signals:

29800 kHz 29.800 MHz Paging signal, weak but its there.  Not nearly as strong as the 26MHz band or 27MHz band POCSAG and other pager signals

29650 FM 29.650 MHz FM - 10m amateur band FM signals
29905 FM 29.905 MHz FM - Freebander chatter, French language - French stations noted using these frequencies previously (29.925 MHz, 29.965 MHz, 29.975 MHz, etc.).  No paging signals on 29.9 MHz or 29.95 MHz as of 1228 UTC.
