Nice signal from the taxi lady Juanita on 26.765 MHz AM 26765kHz AM 26.7650 MHz AM late this morning (U.S. East Coast). 

SIO 333 or so at 1555 UTC / 1600 UTC or 1155 / 1200 noon local time.  Local receive in Richmond, Virginia.

Checking the W3HFU and N1NTE SDRs, her transmitter seems to be a bit more off frequency than usual...carrier offset 26764.4 kHz 26.764.4 MHz.  On the N1NTE SDR, one of the drivers replying to the taxi dispatcher is off-frequency in the other direction, carrier on 26765.6 kHz. 

Of all the Spanish language taxi cab radio systems operating in the 25-50 MHz range, this one is one of the most consistent, right up there with 31.200 MHz FM 203.5 Hz PL tone and the Costa Rican taxi cab radio dispatch system out of Alajuela Costa Rica on 32.180 MHz and 32.940 MHz 77.0 Hz PL and 141.3 Hz PL. 

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