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?

More chance of seeing Boris Johnson in drag than being prosecuted by ofcom

Is it technically a HAM frequency then? Is there a basic CB licence or something?

Not a HAM frequency. It is in small segment of the 11m band between the two legal sets of 40 channels that we are allowed to use in the UK.

As far as licences for CB, none are required any more.. here in the UK anyways.

The only way is up for you David in your starting journey of radio. Cool 

So there are 2 sets of legal frequencies allocated.

The top box legal in the UK including SSB.

http://coastalcomms.org.uk/frequency_listings.htm

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. What a Face

OFCOM cannot hear you, all they can hear is "Hola, Hola Coca friggin cola" the same as you. lol!

No, HAM band starts at 28MHz and goes up to 29 something depending on country.

Seems to be a lot of DX about, so also keep a listen out on 27.355 LSB, which is the main channel over here.

Another good freeband frequency is 26.285 usb. It is not used as much as 27.555, but you can still have some good contacts around there, when the conditions are good.👍
