Sporadic 11 meter CB activity 1745 UTC 17 May 2019
« on: May 17, 2019, 1811 UTC »
Checked the radios on the lunch break - hearing some activity on 27.025 MHz (CB channel 6), 27.085 MHz (CB channel 11) and the usual 26/28 crowd (27.265 and 27.285 MHz).  Locals yakking away on 38 LSB (27.385 LSB), seem to be talking to each other vs. working DX (although they tend to do that even when the band is open...

Basically all AM activity out of the eastern half of the US, but rapid signal fading would indicate sporadic-E propagation.  Receiver is a Galaxy DX 959 (heavily modified) and a PROCOMM PBC1500 (aka JBC1500) base-loaded CB whip on the trunk lip of my car (roughly 66" long with the loading coil and the spring).  Most activity on channels 6 and 11. 
U.S. East Coast, various HF/VHF/UHF radios/scanners/receivers
