Tuning around 11m band 27 MHz band this morning, noted strong POCSAG paging signals on 27.845 MHz 27845 kHz, nearly nonstop. 

I checked 26.945 MHz, 26.960 MHz and others and they're quiet. 

Now there's an off-frequency POCSAG signal centered on 27.847 MHz or 27.8475 MHz or 27.848 MHz.  Tunes fine on 27.850 MHz.  Noted POCSAG activity on 27.855 MHz as well.  Seems like 27850 kHz 27.85 MHz is the "center" frequency. 

Heard at approx. 1125 UTC on May 25 2023 via G8JNJ SDR in Wessex, UK.

U.S. East Coast, various HF/VHF/UHF radios/transceivers/scanners/receivers - land mobile system operator - focus on VHF/UHF and 11m
