Switched up to 11 meters real quick, hearing two OMs chatting away on 27.855 MHz, which is channel 40 up one band, an interesting frequency, er, channel choice.  Slight southern accented OM, possibly truckers.  Pretty colorful conversation, talking about another man's daughter...not going to type the details here but pretty standard CB radio conversation topics here...

Reference to Interstate 95 at 0210 UTC.

Looking at the waterfall, seeing AM traffic (all English language) on nearby frequencies:

27815 kHz AM - 27.815 MHz AM
27825 kHz AM - 27.825 MHz AM
27835 kHz AM - 27.835 MHz AM
27865 kHz AM - 27.865 MHz AM
27885 kHz AM - 27.885 MHz AM

All six of these frequencies were carrying English-speaking stations and all of them appeared to either truck drivers or local CBers talking to other stations that are local to them.  Usually AM signals aren't found in this portion of the band, which further backs up the local net frequency being heard because of a sporadic-E propagation band opening.
