Excellent, another 11 meter / CB band opening.

Any activity on the other AM DX channels?  Namely CB channels 11 (27.085 MHz), 26 (27.265 MHz) and 28 (27.285 MHz) and the out of band AM DX frequencies clustered around 26.7 to 26.9 MHz (26.915 MHz, 26.905 MHz, 26.885 MHz, 26.835 MHz, 26.735 MHz, 26.725 MHz, 26.715 MHz, 26.705 MHz and the other channels +10 kHz and -10 kHz from those)?

Checking out the KiwiSDRs starting at 1600 UTC:

COMMSIGMA KiwiSDR on the CT/MA border:

Basically every single one of the legal 40 channels are busy, with 27.025 MHz, 27.085 MHz, 27.265 MHz, 27.285 MHz and several others booming in with AM activity.  I'm hearing a heterodyne on channel 23 (27.255 MHz) consisting of two OMs speaking Spanish to each other, and several FSK datalink or telemetry bursts on top of them.  OMs speaking English coming in at 1609 UTC, with QRM from channel 26 (27.265 MHz). 

Noting activity on the following out of band frequencies:

26-27 MHz - lots of the ISM swoops and wooshes showing up on the waterfall
26.345 MHz - OMs speaking English "what about his daughter?" "and Paul"
26.525 MHz - English language, southern accents, heavy fading
26.565 MHz - mix of Spanish and English, messy
26.815 MHz - weak AM carrier fading in and out
26.855 MHz - two OMs talking, sound like truckers, then crazy QRM from ISM - woooosshhh
