The A channels (RC channels) are actually pretty popular.  Iíve noticed truckers using 19A (27.195 MHz / 27195 kHz) in the past, have even heard operators using FM voice mode on 27.195.  27.045 MHz (channel 7A) is pretty close to the mess that is 27.025 MHz but Iíve also logged activity on 26.995 MHz (channel 3A). 

It would appear thereís another sporadic-E opening in progress...according to DXMaps anyway, E-skip activity on 10 meters and 6 meters this morning.  That would mean that 11 meters / CB and VHF lowband 30-50 MHz are also open.

There used to be some FM walkie talkies on the "A" channels long ago. Don't think they were FCC approved as they didn't stay on the market long. I seem to believe that either Midland or Maxon made them.
