11m DX Band Opening Activity 2 March 2022
« on: March 02, 2022, 1340 UTC »
1335 UTC noting activity on 27555 USB as well as QSO on 27520 USB, 27535 USB and 27525 USB

French language on 27520 USB at 1339 UTC, fair to good signals

"it was the 28th of February, Monday, we did that....on frequency 27.540 MHz, Andy, you're right here" on 27.525 MHz USB, mention of '26 division' (UK)


Paging signals on
26.150 MHz, 26.200 MHz, wide POCSAG on 26.250 MHz, 26.635 MHz, 26.650 MHz, 26.695 MHz, 26.745 MHz at 1340 UTC 

Now some weak FM on 26.655, some QRM from the data signal on 26.650 MHz.  26695 and 26745 both getting stronger

Now hearing SSB voice on 26.450 MHz USB with some POCSAG or FSK data underneath it.  26.445 USB also active.  Possibly Polish language?  Could be indicators of a European band opening.  FM signal on CB channel 3 - 26.985 MHz fading in at 1350 UTC, sounds like UK? 

Italian on 27.645 USB at 1351 UTC

"CQ West Indies, do QSY on 27495, 27.495, thank you" - 1352 UTC on 27.555 MHz USB
