Was away for a couple of hours grocery shopping. The band is not was it was this am, but there is still some DX stations coming in. I've been chasing a Portugal station, but now they're only taking west coast stations. He's had a big signal for a few hours now.

26.715 AM going absolutely nuts.

Spanish language taxi cab coming in on 25.695 MHz AM as usual.  But I haven't seen/heard 26715 AM like this in a while.

Also hearing Spanish language on 27.125 USB - that's channel 14 but in USB mode.  First time I've heard SSB used on CB channel 14.

Yes. It's been a blast. If I had a dollar for every time I said CQ today, I wouldn't have to go to work tomorrow!

California on 27.555. I was calling CQ and he gave me a quick 5/7 signal report. Always nice to work a west coast station.

Couldn't help myself, turned the rig back on, and had a great QSO with a Brazilan station on 27.530. Guess I'll try for a few more. Sorry for all the post, I'm just so excited to hear these conditions after such a long wait.

I agree these are pretty awesome.  Hearing European and UK stations mixing in with Latin American and Caribbean stations and Russian hospital pager transmitters all at once is pretty amazing.
