Hearing some freebanders below the CB band this morning starting around 1400z. So far they all sound like they are from the Southern US.

Now SS OM on 27695 LSB at 1546z. And an EE OM on 27835 AM.

Just talked AM skip on channel 22 from WA to CA running barefoot (4w or however it came out of the factory).  Skip is pretty good tonight.

My handle is "Staticbox" because I listen to SW, lol. On SSB it's "RST111 Washington"  If someone logs me, I'll send an eQSL.

27835 AM is an interesting one.  Usually when I hear AM signals (English speaking stations) they tend to stay below channel 1 (26965 kHz), with the big exception being truckers, hunters and poachers operating all over the bands.

For what it's worth, 27835 kHz / 27.835 MHz is channel 38 up one band (27385 + 450 = 27835).  Maybe they were having a QSO on 27385 and the QRM got too bad so they flipped that band switch.
U.S. East Coast, various HF/VHF/UHF radios/transceivers/scanners/receivers - land mobile system operator - focus on VHF/UHF and 11m
