Starting at 1900 UTC (2000 British Summer Time / local time at SDR's location).

Started at 25 MHz this time.  12 meters was showing considerable activity, and frequencies directly above and below 12m were also busy with FSK digital traffic.  Nothing heard on 25.000 MHz / 25000 kHz (WWV's frequency).  Since this SDR is located in the UK, that's not surprising.

*The upper part of 25 MHz was filled with taxi cab dispatch traffic, all of it Russian or Russian-sounding, mostly with female dispatchers.

*The lower to mid part of 26 MHz was a mixture of FM voice and USB voice signals with 5 kHz steps, Russian language

*Once you get past 26.565 MHz, the German FM CB traffic starts to come in, but that doesn't bother the Russians, who appear to use 5 kHz channel steps all the way through 27 MHz.
 
*German 80 channel CB is 26.565 to 27.405 MHz, with FM only on 26.565-26.955 and AM/FM allowed 26.965-27.405 MHz

*Paging systems are all over the place.  26.200 MHz, 26.350 MHz, 26.500 MHz, 26.695 MHz, 26.705 MHz, 26.745 MHz, 26.900 MHz, 26.950 MHz, 27.300 MHz, 27.600 MHz and 27.700 MHz all had strong paging signals on them.  Other frequencies had weaker paging traffic or other data link signals on them in addition to voice traffic. 

*27.4 to 27.7 MHz is home to all sorts of SSB DX traffic, centered around 27.555 MHz, in 5 kHz steps, all in USB mode.  USB/LSB both used inside the "mid band" CB band (26.965-27.405). 

*The UK FM 27/81 CB band (27.60125 MHz - 27.99125 MHz in straight 10 kHz channel steps, FM only) was mixing in with SSB traffic all over the upper portions of the band. 

*The Russian and CIS signals make use of both the "fives" and the "zeros".
