26920 FM 26.920 MHz FM - FSK data bursts, weak/fair signal at 1325 UTC
27095 FM 27.095 MHz FM - Strong data link data stream, about 2.5 kHz wide, S8-S9 very strong
27350 FM 27.350 MHz FM - Weak paging signal - 7-8 kHz wide, heavy QSB

The UK paging systems seem to make more extensive use of the oddball offsets, including 26.6075 or 26.608 MHz.  Could be heard tuned to 26.610 MHz as well.  Checked a couple UK-based SDRs and noted paging signals all over the 26 MHz band - including on odd offset channels and the usual -5 kHz or +5 kHz offsets (such as 26.695 MHz and 26.705 MHz for the 26.700 MHz center frequency, the 26.845 MHz and 26.855 MHz frequencies for the 26.85 MHz center frequency, and so on.

26.920 MHz is a new one I believe.  Likely a European-based paging system.  The UK SDRs showed at least 10 different paging systems on at once.
