Worked various ops in a few New Engand and Midwestern states, plus an op in Ireland, around mid-day. Usual 11m CB SSB frequencies. 11m DX propagation was varying from somewhat dismal to moderate at the time.

The bands have been sort of all over the place recently.  At some points, 11 meters and 10 meters are both going nuts, then VHF low band opens up...then things quiet down just as quickly.

I've noticed a lot more paging signals, data links and narrow bandwidth MFSK signals (on odd offset frequencies from 25-28 MHz) during recent openings.

Lots and lots of activity either way.  Nice to see more and more FM signals popping up, most of them are still out of the legal 40 US CB band though it seems.
