Hello friends and happy Friday!
Some propogation i see on the charts for late Sunday i see.
Question. I have just served all my channels correctly to the ofcom list of CB dedicated channels. Then I realised that 27.555 wasn't on the list...hmm I thought, does that make it technically illegal for me to use on my CB on usb?

The only way is up for you David in your starting journey of radio.
So there are 2 sets of legal frequencies allocated.
The top box legal in the UK including SSB.
Outside here is technically illegal. That does not seem to have stopped the enjoyment of 27.555 and other frequencies for the last 30-40 years.
When you think about it, it is completely logical.. when there is no skip there are very few stations there anyway.. and when there is skip, those frequencies are fully interfered with by massive end stop signals from around the world... so there is simply no point or reason to go looking for a few people having a bit of fun DXing there.
You need to DF and raid the entire world.
OFCOM cannot hear you, all they can hear is "Hola, Hola Coca friggin cola" the same as you.
