26.805 MHz FM club very active today and even now.  November 28th, 2023.

Noted in-band chatter in FM mode on CB radio channel 29 frequency 27.295 MHz FM.  Also some sporadic FM use on:

CB Channel 30 - frequency 27.305 MHz FM
CB Channel 23 - frequency 27.255 MHz FM - mostly AM voice, RCRS data bursts and some SSB activity on/near 27.255MHz. 

CB Radio Channel 29 seemed to have the most FM activity.  Some FM noted on channel 40 as well 27.405 MHz FM.

1837 UTC on 30 November 2023:

FM activity coming in on 26.805 MHz FM.  "164 Pennsylvania" at 1838 UTC with a nearly full scale signal. 

Lots of AM voice from US-based freeband CB radio operators in the 26 MHz range - that "lowers" or "Band C" 26.515 MHz - 26.955 MHz, including the famous 26.915 MHz AM frequency and 26.955 MHz AM itself.

26.555 MHz LSB and 26.585 MHz AM (and several other nearby freqs) are super super busy with Mexican CB radio traffic.  Noted use of 26.540 MHz LSB as a QSY or alternate frequency because of how congested 26.555 LSB is.
