The spectrum around 10 meters has been very hot lately.  I have been hearing UK CBers on the East Coast regularly!  They are using just 5 Watts on FM, and often have only mobile antennas!  If you want to hear them and have an FM receiver, just tune between the 10 Meter Ham Band and above the US Citizens Band.  The frequencies for the UK Citizens Band can be found online.  Happy SWLing!!  Smiley

When the band is open  to Asia and the  pacific you can hear FM from 24 to 30mhz. Its full of FM and AM carriers.
They all using the illegal freeband CB radios marketed  as Ham radios. Thats why would encourage every ham not to buy these products because all you are doing is supporting  products and companies that are promoting piracy on the ham bands.

In fact the pirate activity is so bad in the  Asia region that when you fly over these areas you hear pirates on the AM aero band. There is  pirate chit chat on the marine and HF aeronautical frequencies. Its total chaos  on the  HF spectrum in Asia.

When they were searching for the missing Malaysian Airliner lost, the searchers had a hard time communicating because of all the pirate activity on the aeronautical bands. It also made monitoring for air traffic hard because of all the pirates. The only country that takes spectrum management seriously is Thailand and Japan. Everywhere else  you can buy radio cordless phones that can tuner from 100mhz to 500mhz with 25 watts of output!
