Dominion is keeping the 48 MHz system in operation.  Also, VDOT's 45/47 MHz system isn't going anywhere.

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

Plus paging signals on

26150 kHz 26.150 MHz Pager
26250 kHz 26.250 MHz Pager
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
27661 FM 27.66125 MHz FM - UK FM CB Channel 7
27781 FM 27.78125 MHz FM - UK FM CB Channel 19
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.

Absolutely.  26100, 26150, 26200, 26235 (and other offsets like 26237.5, 26238) 26250, 26350, 26400, 26435, 26440, 26450, 26550, 26555 (yes, even though 26.555 LSB is super popular) 26600, 26605, 26610, 26625, 26635, 26645, 26650, 26655, 26695, 26700, 26705, 26745, 26750, 26755, 26845, 26850, 26855, 26865, 26900, 26935 and many others are all known 26 MHz band paging frequencies.  The lower 26 MHz ones are apparently UK hospital pagers and used in other parts of Europe as well.  26600 had a very strong signal on it at points, and was transmitting an unmodulated carrier "idle" when there wasn't data being sent.   

26950 26.950 MHz and 26955 26.955 MHz also apparently heavily used.  There are dozens of others, including in-band frequencies - especially around 27100, 27150, 27300, 27350 and 27360.  Same with 27450, 27500 (and 27505), 27550 and 27650.  Not sure of their origin.  Paging and data links on 26945 and 26960 are apparently out of Russia and likely used elsewhere as well.  There are also pagers operating on 29750, 29800, 29850, 29900, 29950, 30000, 30020 and 30025 all appear to be coming out of Europe.  I know that at one time anyway, 30.020 MHz and 30.025 MHz often had POCSAG signals on them, apparently out of Canada.  Not sure if they're still using those frequencies as well or not.
