Some interesting logs here, including the 29.750 MHz 29.75 MHz, 29.800 MHz 29.8 MHz and 29.900 MHz 29.9 MHz pager signals coming in...same with 30.900 MHz, 31.320 MHz and the 31.1875 MHz frequency (maybe offset from 31.180 MHz, 31.190 MHz or 31.200 MHz..or it's coming from a country that uses the 12.5 kHz steps for that particular band plan. 

I remember reading about Canadian pager systems operating in the 29.8 MHz to 30-something MHz band, 10 kHz steps.  Of course, the freebanders / outbanders using 29.875 MHz is another interesting one.  To be fair, the 25 MHz, 26 MHz and 27 MHz bands were extremely busy.  Lots of activity in the 29.000 MHz to 29.700 MHz portion of 10m as well. 

But the 26 to 28 MHz band was just nuts.

27.195 MHz 27195 kHz - Noting a mixture of AM voice, the usually heard FSK data signal bursts and weak FM voice (Spanish language) on 27.195 MHz (R/C channel 19A).  Later SSB voice signals (27.195 MHz USB - Spanish language) also coming in with the mix!  Most of the signals heard here are regular AM voice signals mixing in with FSK data bursts

27.255 MHz 27255 kHz - Several FSK data bursts noted (usually with signals on 27.252 MHz or 27.253 MHz on the lower side of center frequency and again on 27.256 MHz or 27.257 MHz on the upper side of center frequency).  27.252 and 27.256 both very strong, another (different bandwidth) FSK burst noted on 27.254 MHz (possibly off-frequency).  LSB voice noted as well 27.255 MHz LSB mixing with AM voice and the data bursts.  Checked 27.255 MHz again at approx 1930 UTC and the usual data bursts are still there, but a bit weaker than before.  As expected, AM voice signals are also present on frequency (after all, 27255 is legal CB channel 23.

10/11 meters / 11 meter activity 29 October 2021
« on: October 29, 2021, 1905 UTC »
At 1900 UTC, hearing some US stations working DX on the good old' 26.915 MHz AM frequency.  Sporadic, but its there.  Sounds like numerous stations on top of each other.  Channels 6 is busy.

Also, hearing FM on CB channel 30 at 1905 UTC - 27.305 MHz FM 27.305 FM

10/11 meters / 11 meters 28 OCT 2021
« on: October 28, 2021, 1236 UTC »
First off, happy FM is now legal on CB radio day!

At 1230 UTC the band is pretty quiet.  However, there is some faint traffic on 26745 AM 26.745 MHz AM - it sounds like a taxi dispatcher - female taxi controller reading numbers in Spanish.  26.745 MHz is one of those frequencies that often stays clear because its so close to the "big radio channels" - in this case, 26.705 MHz, 26.715 MHz and 26.725 MHz.  26.735 MHz is channel 19 down one band so its often used by truckers and other business or land mobile users looking for a clear channel.  See also - channel 19 up one band - 27.635 MHz, channel 19 down two bands - 26.285 MHz and channel 19 down three bands - 25.835 MHz.  I've heard local traffic on 25.835 MHz AM numerous times, and it was always truckers.  On most export radios, the legal CB band is Band D, so 25.835 MHz is channel 19 on Band A.  Its often easier to simply flip the band switch and leave the channel selector knob alone.  Need a clear channel?  Well, you're both already on CB channel 19 27.185 MHz..simply flip the band switch from D to A and you have a clear frequency. 

Also noting some activity on channel 7 - 27.035 MHz AM - appears to be Latin American stations

1400 UTC - the band appears to have quieted down a little bit...checking numerous KiwiSDRs on the US East Coast and it appears like things are pretty quiet

195
Here is a list of active paging and telemetry frequencies - all European in origin.  All frequencies are confirmed as active as of October 2021.  Many of these systems transmit an "idle" signal every 2-10 seconds, even if no data is being sent.  Others only transmit when needed. On the more active 26 MHz frequencies, several different signals may be noted on the same frequency.



Based on listening on several European SDRs:


26150 kHz 26.150 MHz - European paging, hospital pager data telemetry - POCSAG and other modes

The European standardized or harmonized 26 MHz paging band extends from 26.200 MHz to 26.935 MHz or 26200 kHz to 26935 kHz (according to several sources). 

Others indicate that the band extends from 26.175 MHz to 26.950 MHz or 26175 kHz to 26950 kHz.  The 26.995, 27.045, 27.095, 27.145 and 27.195 frequencies are standardized throughout Europe for model control telecommand radio control RC use.  The standardized 27 MHz ISM band (center frequency 27.120 MHz 27120 kHz +/- 163 kHz for a frequency range of 26.957 MHz to 27.283 MHz / 26957 kHz to 27283 kHz) also applies and the same range is permitted for very low power short range devices - nonspecific SRDs.

The table of frequency allocations breaks the bands down as follows:

26100 kHz - 26175 kHz 26.100 MHz - 26.175 MHz - Maritime Mobile - DSC, marine HF radio, military communications

26175 kHz - 26200 kHz 26.175 MHz - 26.200 MHz - Fixed and Mobile - Fixed service, military mobile

26200 kHz - 26350 kHz 26.200 MHz - 26.350 MHz - Fixed and Mobile - Fixed service, military mobile

26350 kHz - 27500 kHz 26.350 MHz - 27.500 MHz - Fixed and Mobile - CB radio (EN 300 433 band 26.96-27.41 MHz)

27500 kHz - 28000 kHz 27.500 MHz - 28.000 MHz - Fixed, Mobile, Meteorological Aids - Military mobile communications systems, including aeronautical military systems, land mobile military systems
