The remote SDR in question is here--> [http://rz3dvp.ru:8073/]

I recently added several more European and Russian remote SDRs to my bookmarks.  The band does not appear to be open at this SDR's location.  I can barely hear the 26.945 MHz paging transmitter that is always S9+30 at http://nsk.swl.su:8073/ (which is located in Novosibirsk, in South-Central Russia).  Nakhabino is located roughly 40 miles/65km from the center of Moscow, and roughly 3500 miles/5700 km from Novosibirsk.  So the fact that I'm hearing the 26945 kHz 26 MHz paging frequency active on two SDRs that are 3500 miles away from each other likely means its like the 26 MHz UK paging frequencies, located on-site at hospitals, etc.  

After listening for a while, it became apparent that, like most places, there are local channels that most of the chatter is centered on, followed by the road channel or trucker channel...and then, since this is Russia, there's taxi cab companies (local ones) using 27.735 MHz FM and 27.875 MHz FM.  The band is closed and I'm only hearing local stuff so I bet these two taxi companies are pretty close to the receiver site.  The weaker taxi traffic could have been coming from other suburbs of Moscow or maybe even Moscow itself.  

Anyway,  here's the logs from the Nakhabino SDR, starting at 1945 UTC, ending at 2015 UTC.
