I always have a shout on there when I am out and about and it usually nets a couple of contacts. I don't really expect a lot more, the main point of things is to keep the frequency in peoples' minds for when the band is back up and the T5 is jammed. Plus being a MHz lower than that T5 there will be a tiny, tiny marginal advantage in being on 26MHz rather than the T5 while we are bumping along the bottom.

TBH alot of people dont know about 285 or have totally forgotten about it which in one way I like ,because it might keep the idiots away from it and let them stay on T5, cos I've noticed acationally there is a few of the UK19 Muppets getting on the T5 trying to block it out like they do on 19

Well you use a Yaesu so your OK ,plus if your a licensed Amateur you shouldn't be using those frequency using that equipment lol! ,but I know what your saying but there is a lot out there who only use totally 100% legal equipment and most probably not interested and lot of us who know about these frequency have been around cb for years that's why we know about them

Hello Martin,

I have had some great contacts on 26.285. I used to regularly talk to 2/141 Charlie from Vermont and an expat called John (cannot remember his call-sign) over in Reykjavik, Iceland. The first time I talked to John, I thought it was a good ground-wave contact. Lol. Still had quite a strong west country twang.

There used to be a lot of 44/31/2/9 Div around there. 26.420 was always good for talking to the Charlie Oscars too. Used to get some good contacts on 25.835 back in the day too. It will be great when the good conditions return.

Good to see 26mhz has still got some users as its been a place i have used since the early 80s...As mentioned John in Iceland is a regular as are a few from USA so lets hope for better conditions and it gets some decent qso`s going again...

I used to speak with a guy in Tenerife (Mike) a few years ago when conditions were far better,we spoke often as i used to visit Tenerife regularly and one of our chats a guy in Vermont Canada asked to join the chat.

We spoke for over an hour just like talking on the phone and i was only using radio power (12w) but we was at the peak of an amazing cycle then.I do hope we have those conditions again in a few years.
The Canadian Outlaws as mentioned earlier are good to chat with on 26.420 and there are plenty of them using that freq so a chat is always possible..In fact check out even lower down on 25mhz as ive worked a few 2 div down there too...Keep an eye on your swr though..
