I hear a lot of Florida stations during band openings as well as nearby points in the deep south and the Caribbean.  Seems like the skip zone for 26-30 MHz favors that sort of distance, although I have worked closer stations on channel 38 LSB and nearby frequencies. 

Seems like the frequencies just above channel 40 are popular with SSB operators in that part of the country, with 27.425 LSB, 27.430 LSB, 27.445 LSB and 27.465 LSB often busy when the band is open to that part of the country.  There is (or was) a Spanish speaking taxi cab dispatcher (distinctive voice, Mexican accented Spanish YL dispatcher) on 27.445 MHz (AM mode) as well, sometimes she comes in strong enough to cause QRM issues for the stateside stations working LSB on the same frequency.
