Took a look at the other side of the big pond via Twente SDR at ~1200z. Various 11m FM activity noted, including an op on 27205 outside of Moscow.

Switched over to an Antron 99 18' vertical mounted at ~20' with four ~8.5' radials. I still need to tune it down like 400-500KHz or so, but "whatever" for receiving purposes.

1449z - 27175a Ch18 sounds like truckers
1451z - 27265a Ch26 activity.... sounds like NA DX of a local(s) group
1453z - 27135a Ch15 likely NA DX.... over-modulated with echo
1455z - 27050a Ch4 DX qso about antenna.... Caribbean?
1457z - 26965a Ch1 Panama DX.... op with lots of echo

1500z - It is now exactly wall-to-wall signals, but 11m DX is open for business here.
