Yep, 27.015 AM is one of them (CB channel 5). 

Others to check when 27015 AM is active are:

26585 AM / 26.585 MHz AM and nearby channels (26.565 MHz, 26.575 MHz, 26.595 MHz, etc.)

26705 AM / 26.705 MHz AM
26715 AM / 26.715 MHz AM

and

27065 AM / 27.065 MHz AM - that's right, CB channel 9.  26705 AM and 26715 AM are very popular with stations in Florida, Puerto Rico and other parts of the Caribbean.  26585 AM is one of the popular Mexican trucker channels.
