11 Meter Band DX Opening Logs 22 May 2017 1600+ UTC
« on: May 22, 2017, 1825 UTC »
Another morning/early afternoon 11 meter 26 MHz 27 MHz band opening log, yes, here it is. 

Started monitoring around 1600 UTC May 22, 2017.  Lots of Latin American traffic, as usual, but the US frequencies of 26915, 27025, 27085, 27265, 27285 and 27385 were all active as well.  Our usual friends that hang around 27665 to 27705 were also booming in nicely, especially on 27695.  Did catch the tail end of a SSTV transmission on 27700 but haven't heard anything else since on that frequency, save for some very minor splatter from 27695 and 27705.
