At 1325 UTC, noted faint pager signal activity on 26.900 MHz 26900 kHz on the W3HFU KiwiSDR (11 meter dipole).  26.9 MHz is a known active European 26 MHz paging frequency.

Maybe a bigger opening today or some Sporadic-E activity. 

1357 UTC: caught the tail end of some CW on 27.500 MHz, then again on 27.501 MHz
1357 UTC: now some weak-ish AM on 27.465 MHz - and its...Italian! 
1358 UTC: now a CW signal on 27500.7 27.500.7 MHz 27.5 MHz CW signals...

1820 UTC: the other big radio channels, namely the Super Bowl CB channel 6 and CB channel 11 27.025 MHz and 27.085 MHz
1820 UTC: Checked the Class C (RC) channels, very weak data bursts still coming in on 27.195 MHz
