11 meters very good this morning UTC 31 Oct 2015
« on: October 31, 2015, 1513 UTC »
The 25910 STL is extremely strong here, much stronger than I recall in some time. 25990 also strong.
Also a freebander on 25925 talking about a tornado.
Starting to get some UK CB now, as well.

Lots of UK CBers now coming in. I'm hoping today is the day some of the Irish churches make it across the pond. Should be about time?

Heard UK FM CB on 27781 FM, 27601 FM and 27971 FM

Also hearing both FM and LSB traffic on 26775.  The stations using FM are speaking English with American accents, LSB is Spanish language and way down in the noise.

Interesting band conditions today
