CB Divisions on 27 MHz

It can often be useful to listen on the 27 MHz CB band to see if propagation is likely on 28 MHz, especially when the 10 metre band seems dead. The fact that it is slightly lower in frequency can mean that the CB band will open before 10 metres for F2 and Sp-E propagation.

Many of those CB operators who are into DX-ing use 'Division' numbers. For example, if you heard '26 AB 123' then that person would be from England.

The full list is shown below.
