Gotta love it.  Sounds like another ham operator operating on 11 meters.  "I've been licensed 8 years".  I have a ham license therefore I'm better than you - but I'm going to transmit on CB channels anyway.

Several years ago I recorded somebody calling CQ DX through the voice traffic on 27385 LSB / channel 38 LSB / 27.385 LSB.  I initially thought they were just trying to jam the frequency since they kept repeating it over and over again but apparently they actually were calling CQ DX.

Curious as to what software you are using to decode that CW...
