« on: June 12, 2019, 1452 UTC »

The band seems to have quieted down a bit at 1700 UTC.  Hearing half of a QSO on 26.935 MHz AM, with sporadic activity on 26.915 MHz and the other usual low channel frequencies.  Activity within the legal 40 CB channels seems to have died down a bit too (for now anyway).

Hearing an oddity, somebody using SSB on the lower channels,

26.835 MHz LSB two OMs chatting away about Venus Fly Traps.  Several of the in-band frequencies are very busy (the usual suspects on 27.025 MHz, 27.085 MHz, etc. are busy)
