29.875 MHz is apparently one of the more popular frequencies for these guys.  I thought 31.100 MHz and 31.800 MHz were busy but 29875 FM is basically nonstop. 

27.750 MHz FM, 27.775 MHz FM, 27.900 MHz FM, 27.975 MHz FM, 28.000 MHz FM and numerous frequencies within 10 meters are also busy.  29.150 MHz FM seems to be the most popular one, with the Russian taxi cabs mixing in.
