Utility / Re: CIS Navy on HF
« on: July 10, 2019, 1414 UTC »
Very nice info, Josh.

Interestingly enough, 7630 kHz is also one of the nationwide/regional net frequencies for the Civil Air Patrol (listed as part of "Net 3" but part of their main HF-SSB channel lineup. 

602
The A channels (RC channels) are actually pretty popular.  I’ve noticed truckers using 19A (27.195 MHz / 27195 kHz) in the past, have even heard operators using FM voice mode on 27.195.  27.045 MHz (channel 7A) is pretty close to the mess that is 27.025 MHz but I’ve also logged activity on 26.995 MHz (channel 3A). 

It would appear there’s another sporadic-E opening in progress...according to DXMaps anyway, E-skip activity on 10 meters and 6 meters this morning.  That would mean that 11 meters / CB and VHF lowband 30-50 MHz are also open.

603
Hearing two truckers chatting on 26.405 MHz AM / 26405 kHz AM, both with good signals.  Talking about trucking related topics (company drama, weigh scales, several mentions of "Toledo" and "75" - presuming that's a reference to I-75 or route 75).  At one point it became clear the two operators were within eyesight of each other, likely a "company channel" or "side channel" used by truckers from a particular location or company...several other 26 MHz frequencies are waking up early this afternoon.  Hearing two OMs chatting on 25.925 MHz AM / 25925 kHz AM, both of them seem to be local to each other as well.

10/11 meters / Re: 11 meter band opening 7/8/2019 18:17 UTC

27.555 MHz USB is the international 11m calling frequency, well, the primary one anyway.  The alternate is apparently 26.285 MHz USB, but it seems like that's rarely used in the Americas and is more popular in Europe.  27.555 USB can get really busy during some band openings.

11 meters is open right now actually.

Peskies / 9161.3 kHz USB - Spanish Speaking 2140 UTC 8 July 2019
« on: July 08, 2019, 2143 UTC »
Foul-mouthed Spanish speaking fishermen (or freebanders, both, I suppose) on oddball frequency 9161.3 kHz 9.161.3 MHz USB 9161.3 USB.  At least two different stations involved, all the usual Spanish language curse words heard.

Lots of activity on 27.025 MHz / CB channel 6 at 2110 UTC.  27.085 MHz (channel 11) and several others are also busy.  Via Milford, PA SDR:

26.915 MHz - English language, busy
26.885 MHz - English language
26.845 MHz - English language
26.775 MHz - English, mention of southern and south-central states
26.725 MHz - Spanish language, less busy than 26.715 MHz AM
26.715 MHz - Spanish language, lots of fading
26.565 MHz - weak, possibly a mixture of Spanish/English

Also noting activity on 27.465 MHz LSB and other frequencies above channel 40.  Nothing on 27.555 USB though.

Peskies / 6925 kHz LSB - The Usual Suspects 2112 UTC 8 July 2019
« on: July 08, 2019, 2113 UTC »
6.925 MHz LSB 6925 kHz LSB 6925 LSB Portuguese chatter - several stations going nearly non-stop.  SIO 222 or so.  Lots of thunderstorm crashes and static this afternoon. 

609
I believe the old VHF low MTS/IMTS frequencies (paired 35 MHz and 43 MHz frequencies) are empty and available for very cheap purchase in most, if not all markets. 

They’re slowly re-allocating the VHF high (152 MHz and 157 MHz) and UHF (454 MHz and 459 MHz) IMTS  frequencies to land mobile uses...but basically everywhere outside large metro areas these three sets of paired frequencies are quiet.  At least in my area, the 152 MHz IMTS channels are used for both POCSAG paging and trunked land mobile (P25 trunking) systems. 

610
"Cruel Summer" at 1757 UTC on 12131 kHz / 12.131 MHz, just right outside the Alex Jones' splatter from WWCR on 12160 kHz.   Mix Radio International shortwave pirate station on 25 meters. 

Good signal and very good audio (as usual from Mix Radio International)

Off at 1823 or 1824 UTC.

Seemed to have QSY'd to 13572 kHz USB mode (unless the station on 13572 USB is a different pirate altogether?)

and...13572 USB is quiet as of 1832 UTC (that, or they faded out while I was tuning 11 meters for a few seconds)

611
