I am fascinated by 11 meters and how its used worldwide so being able to listen to it from a receiver located in Western Europe is a real treat.  I know this one is in the southwestern portion of the UK but it seems to receive 25-30 MHz very well.  I usually start around 25.615 MHz, which is channel 1 on band A on most export radios.  However, I did notice some activity below 25.615 and I have included it in my logs.  The lower frequencies are filled with Russian voices and Germans chatting on their channels 41-80 (26.565 to 26.955 MHz straight 10 kHz steps).  Data signals noted on 27.235, 27.245 and 27.635.  Lots of pagers, on both the usual 26 MHz UK on-site paging frequencies (26.200 MHz, 26.250 MHz, 26.350 MHz, etc) and on 27.000 MHz (strange mode too, did not sound like POCSAG, and was roughly 12 kHz wide).  26.950, 27.600, 27.700, and 27.750 MHz were also home to very strong POCSAG paging signals.
