Scattered Spanish-language QSOs from ~26.5MHz to ~27.5MHz at 2718z. Mostly AM, though a few SSB ops, too.

27.025MHz is marginally active. There are signals, but nothing really booming into my locale right now.



27.025MHz activity picking up at 2724z. Starting to sound a little more like usual when there is a decent band opening.
