After a dismal yesterday, starting to get some DX, seems to mostly be from the Gulf Coast so far.

Hearing activity below channel 1 down to 25615.  Noted some AM activity on 27.545 MHz at 1614 UTC.  Also sporadic SSB signals in the 27.4 MHz to 27.7 MHz region.

Lots of AM voice activity on 26.585 MHz, 26.765 MHz, 26.565 MHz, 26.205 MHz, 26.935 MHz, 26.945 MHz, 26.885 MHz, 26.865 MHz and of course the taxi dispatcher is active on 25.695 MHz AM / 25695 AM taxi dispatcher YL and OM taxi cab company on 25.695 MHz.  One of many Latin American taxi companies and/or land mobile users on the 25 MHz band (starting at 25.615 MHz and working your way up to 26.955 MHz...). 

Lots and lots of ISM hooks on the waterfall (W3HFU KiwiSDR) as well.

1630 UTC update:

Activity on:

25695 AM 25.695 MHz AM
26105 AM 26.105 MHz AM
26175 AM 26.175 MHz AM - very weak AM signals, previously logged frequency when band is open
26455 AM 26.455 MHz AM
26565 AM 26.565 MHz AM
26575 AM 26.575 MHz AM - busy Latin American AM DX frequency (secondary to 26.585 MHz)
26585 AM 26.585 MHz AM - busy Latin American AM DX frequency
26945 AM 26.945 MHz AM - AM voice signals - possibly taxi dispatch or other land mobile users?

27440 USB 27.440 MHz USB
27445 AM 27.445 MHz AM - likely taxi cab dispatcher, some QRM with 27.440 MHz
27455 USB 27.455 MHz USB
27530 USB 27.530 MHz USB
27545 AM 27.545 MHz AM
27555 USB 27.555 MHz USB
27665 USB 27.665 MHz USB

Also of note is the fact the CB channel 5 - 27015 AM 27.015 MHz AM - is very very busy, channel 5 is one of the popular Latin American calling frequencies (for in-band operations anyway)
