Another busy day!

Lots of SSB QRM on the UK FM CB channels, but there's FM signals there too.  Noting activity on UK FM CB Channel 19 (27.78125 MHz FM), Channel 6 (27.65125 MHz FM), Channel 16 (27.75125 MHz FM) - lots of QRM on and around 27.75 MHz and 27.755 MHz - hearing AM taxi cab dispatcher signals mixing in with the UK FM stuff on 27.755 MHz. 

Activity noted on:

27991 FM - UK FM CB Channel 40 - 27.99125 MHz FM
27985 USB - French language chatter 27.985 MHz
27981 FM - UK FM CB Channel 39 - 27.98125 MHz FM

27945 AM - UNID AM signals, probably taxi cab dispatch or freebanders

27935 USB - UK stations, lots of signals on top of each other...sounds like it might be recorded audio?
27931 FM - UK FM CB Channel 34 - getting obliterated by the guys on 27.935 MHz USB
27911 FM - UK FM CB Channel 32 - weak signals noted 27.91125 MHz FM
