The FCC DB is a good place to start.  Also check out the current 2023 VHF low band skip logs thread on RadioReference.  There is a lot of confirmed information there (including things like callsigns, PL tone/CTCSS tones or DPL codes/DCS codes in use) for the 33 MHz fire dispatch band and the 30-50 MHz band in general. 

https://forums.radioreference.com/threads/2023-vhf-low-band-logs.436351/page-24


Hope this helps.  There is a lot of exciting DX coming in on the 25-30 MHz band and the 30-50 MHz band right now with the cycle heating up like it is.

217
Heard in Richmond, VA around 11:00 local time (1600 UTC).

Here is some of the transmissions caught on video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rWmtrt0P96Q

Note that the receiver in question (RadioShack Pro-651, also known as the Pro-106, GRE PSR-500 and Whistler WS1040) decodes the PL tone (CTCSS tone, tone squelch) as 151.4 Hz.  They are using 150.0 Hz, but 150.0Hz is not a civilian tone so its not included in any of these types of radios...and 151.4Hz is the closest to 150 Hz. 

This is the best I've heard Fort Hood Range Control in a while. 

218
32.1800 MHz FM is very active today.  Costa Rican taxi cab company using CTCSS (PL) tones 77.0 Hz and 141.3 Hz both active on 32.180 MHz 32180 kHz FM.

Received in Richmond, VA using handheld scanner receivers and a simple telescopic whip antenna.

219
Heard via handheld receivers (scanners) using a telescopic CB HT antenna.  From 1400 UTC to 1430 UTC or so. 

31.100 MHz FM [CSQ] - Carrier squelch.

Checked the other "usual suspects" and there seemed to be something there - but 31.100 MHz was by far the loudest and clearest.  I was able to close the squelch and they sounded like local two-way land mobile at points.

Radios sold out of China, but used worldwide.  480 channels, FM voice, regular simplex.  Carrier squelch CSQ.  No tone.  No CTCSS tone no PL tone no DCS / DPL.  DTMF/ANI and FSK based selective calling. 

27.5-39.5 MHz according to Chinese law.  Technically the last channel is 39.475 MHz. Radios display channel number only.   

Channel 001 is 27.5000 MHz FM [CSQ]
Channel 002 is 27.5250 MHz FM [CSQ]
Channel 480 is 39.4750 MHz FM [CSQ]

There are apparently variants on the market with switchable 12.5 kHz channel spacing instead of 25 kHz.  They’re advertised as 1000 channel radios, same 27.500 MHz to 39.500 MHz coverage…not sure how many of these are used in the 12.5 kHz mode.

Numerous other services, including an AM mode fishery radio service in Japan in the 35-40 MHz region. 

Others include the “DSB Fishery Radio” WSR-358 and WSR-388, along with Marine DSB Radiotelephone Radios, Marine CB Radios, etc.

DSB Radiotelephone coverages:
AM mode only

25.550 MHz to 30.500 MHz
25.550 MHz to 30.495 MHz
26.475 MHz to 27.275 MHz
26.470 MHz to 27.270 MHz
26.065 MHz to 28.755 MHz
26.760 MHz to 27.980 MHz

Marine CB Radiotelephone or Marine CB Radios Fishery Radios

AM mode and FM mode
or
AM, FM, USB, LSB

25.615 MHz to 30.105 MHz
25.615 MHz to 28.305 MHz
26.065 MHz to 28.755 MHz
25.165 MHz to 28.755 MHz
24.265 MHz to 29.655 MHz
26.515 MHz to 27.855 MHz

Note that 25615 - 30105 is a standard export CB radio band plan, as are 26065 - 28755, 24265-29655 and of course 26515 - 27855.

The “standard” AM and FM mode only Marine CB Radio coverage seems to be 26.065 MHz to 28.755 MHz.  For AM/FM/USB/LSB the coverage is either the same coverage, 25.615 MHz to 30.105 MHz or 24.265 MHz to 29.655 MHz. 

26.76 MHz to 27.98 MHz is the 1 watt double side band fishery radio service out of Japan.  1W DSB 27MHz Fishing Radio Japan 1-watt DSB fishery radiotelephone 26760 kHz 27980 kHz

10/11 meters / 11 Meters + 10 Meters + VHF Low Wide Open 8 Feb 2023
« on: February 08, 2023, 1643 UTC »
Yeah, so...25 MHz up to 6 meters is just going nuts. 


223

Noted US stations running FM on:

26805 FM 26.805 MHz FM - no surprise there
27605 FM 27.605 MHz FM - also not a surprise
27805 FM 27.805 MHz FM - this seems to be a new one.

German stations heard running FM on 27.295 MHz FM CB Channel 29 FM.  I know US truckers have adopted this frequency for FM use, along with 26.845 MHz FM and 27.745 MHz FM.  Of course, Channel 30 FM and Channel 31 FM are also popular.

26.900 MHz and 26.950 MHz have both been home to lots and lots of paging activity recently.  26.905 MHz FM though, that might be a better call.  Same with some other frequencies in the 26.805 MHz to 26.895 MHz ballpark.  When the band isn't open to Europe, 26.900 MHz FM would absolutely work though.
