Morning 11 meter CB activity 1200 UTC 5 Aug 2018
« on: August 05, 2018, 1221 UTC »
Another weekend band opening!

Hearing some OMs chatting on 26895 and several other frequencies below channel 1, including 26915 (low band AM DX channel).  27025, 27085, 27265, 27285 and several other in-band frequencies busy with powerful AM signals.  Noting activity on 27380 LSB as well as 27385 LSB and 27395 LSB. 

27435 LSB and 27445 LSB are also busy with US-based stations working DX

At 1212 UTC - hearing strong signals on 26875 and 26775 as well. 
At 1219 UTC - 26685 AM coming in with southern accents, 26735 AM also noted (CB channel 19 down one band).  The lower channels are a lot busier than the upper channels above channel 40.
