IARU Region 1 report recently on their September Newsletter, asking is 28MHz is a lost band? Yup! Over here in Region 3 often we also heard some of intruders.
Over at their Region 1 they also found much CB-like traffic (AM, FM, SSB) between 28 and 29.7 MHz in September 2011. Origins: Europe, Brazil, Far East. Besides that we observed, that the band is still crowded of numerous CIS taxi-cabs in FM. The conditions on the upper bands are raising, so we are able to recognize and realize the “apocalypse” on our exclusive band. Many authorities seem to be helpless or not interested in this disaster.
