6:00 pm eastern:

29.660 CSQ - repeater kurchunking
29.660 C118.8 - weak
31.000 C173.8 - spanish
31.080 C74.4 - spanish
31.080 C100.0 - forestry
31.720 C103.5 - spanish - very loud
33.800 C179.9 - weak "testing tones for wellington hill"
33.920 C203.5 - dispatch tones

tuning the radio down a bit, AM CB is going crazy, 26.715, 26.865, 26.895, and 26.915 are booming in, someone playing music on .715 and yelling in spanish. SSB on 27.425, 27.435, 27.515 and international calling coming in on 27.555. I'm going outside with my CB now to listen to sideband but this sounds like a pretty intense band opening


edit 7:05 eastern.

went to overlook past downtown Richmond, CB channel 19 noise level is up to S-5...put my radio on 38 LSB and heard West Virginia, St. Louis, Iowa and a few others...the noise levels on CB make it almost unbearable to listen to.

more lowband logs:

29.540 -simplex, CSQ
29.680 two (or three) ham repeaters at once, didn't get a PL tone
31.760 C127.3 - spanish
31.760 C146.2 - "you fill the lot tree thing?"
32.760 C100.0 - data
32.770 C123.0 - data
37.460 C107.2 - repeater
37.700 C131.8
40.960 CSQ - data, very strong
42.360 C107.2
42.420 C178.3
42.620 C178.3
42.920 C178.3
44.580 CSQ - data, sounds like pagers, pretty weak
49.155 CSQ - strange data sounds, strong

sounds like the summer band openings are here. I'm driving from Richmond, VA to Washington, D.C. today and from Washington, D.C. to Baltimore, MD on Sunday...I'm going to try and post logs recorded while in the mob-ile.
