Heard via W3HFU KiwiSDR

At 1300 UTC - Spanish language taxi dispatch lady on 28005 AM 28.005 MHz AM.  Noted unique "roger beep" (end of transmission tone burst) which is the standard for these types of land mobile systems, except this one is operating in the 10 meter amateur band.

Noted numerous parish signals on the UK FM CB frequencies as well as on 27315 FM (CB Channel 31 FM).  Lots of FM signals within the regular CB band and the usual pager signals also starting to come in.  Noted 27450 FM had POCSAG bursts on it, along with several others.  27300 FM with nearly-constant POCSAG signals.  27235 and 27245 (CB Channel 23 and CB Channel 24) both very busy with packet radio, what sounded like paging signals, data bursts...MFSK and FSK signals all over the place...plus the usual AM, FM and SSB traffic.  27700 and 27800 both had POCSAG paging signals, didn't see anything on 29750, 29800, 29850, 29900 or 29950 but that doesn't mean there isn't anything now. 

The 27003 kHz (or 27002.5 - it's a wide signal, center frequency could be 27.003 MHz or 27.002 MHz) POCSAG paging signal seems to appear when these other non-standard pager and data link signals also appear.  I know 27007 (27.007 MHz) is apparently used somewhere in Central or Northern Europe - and other logs indicate that 27450 (27.450 MHz) is used for paging and data link systems in Finland and probably other Nordic countries.   

I guess 27205 FM needs to be checked to  see if the simplex repeater is active.  Same with 26985 FM, 27405 FM, 26565 FM and the dozens of other frequencies with simplex repeaters.  Now that you can get AM/FM CB rigs with the Baofeng style "Kenwood" audio connectors right on the front panel...I see crossband repeaters and simplex repeaters becoming a more popular thing here in the USA.

UK FM CB Channels 1-40 are 27601.25 FM to 27991.25 FM (straight 10 kHz sequence, usually shorted to 27601 FM to 27991 FM).
WPAS Channels LW01 to LW40 match the UK FM band plan (FM mode or AM mode are allowed, but all users appear to use FM on the UK FM channels for obvious reasons)
WPAS Channels UW01 to UW40 are 27605 to 27995 (straight 10 kHz sequence).  27.605 MHz to 27.995 MHz - AM and FM permitted. 
The CEPT/EU/EC "mid band" (FCC) CB channels are also allowed - 26965-27405 for a total of 120 channels.  Since the LW01-LW40 (UK FM Channel 1-40) and UW01-UW40 channels are only 3.75 kHz apart...the offset is not enough for nearby transmitters...but it is enough offset for distant transmitters running FM due to the capture effect. 

Irish church parish radio signals coming in nicely right now at 1157 UTC:

27601 FM - frequency 27601.25 kHz FM 27.60125 MHz FM - UK FM CB Channel 1 / CADS WPAS Channel LW01

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
