11 meters is active 2140 UTC 9 October 2019

In-band channels are relatively quiet, but 26.705 MHz and 26.715 MHz are both quite busy with Spanish language chatter.  Busier than channel 6 (27.025 MHz) and the other usual legal 40 AM DX channels. 

Noted 26.725 MHz, 26.605 MHz, 26.585 MHz and several other low channels active with Spanish language traffic in AM mode.

I havenít heard nearly as much activity on 27.455 MHz USB as I heard in years past.  Itís still active for sure.  When the 26.705 MHz / 26.715 MHz guys are booming in and the other 26 MHz freeband frequencies are busy with Spanish speaking stations thatís generally a sign 27.455 USB will be busy. 

The Caribbean stations on 26.705 AM / 26.715 AM sometimes use 27.455 USB or 26.555 LSB for 11 meter SSB.
