During the Fall season over the last several years when 10 was open to
Europe you could hear lots of commercial, taxi, and other types operating
on AM and FM above 29 MHz. It wasn't uncommon to fight the QRM of the
Russian taxi drivers except with a good receiver. Even with openings to
South America, you would occasionally hear commercial type activities
above 29 MHz. Operating down in the low end of 10 meters or between the
low end edge of 10 meters and the top of the current CB band, is also
nothing new. It's been going on since the 70's. There have been many mods
over the years converting CB rigs to operate outside of their "normal"
frequency coverage, and most of the mods don't require rocket science
intelligence. As we move down the sunspot cycle, many of these signals
will become just a memory.
