What's the deal with low band? Years ago, probably 25 years ago, the VHF low band 30-50 Mhz had a lot of activity. Now, I only hear stations around the 39 Mhz Public Safety band and 45 Mhz State Police. And, of course, baby monitors and older portable phones. I know we are at a low spot in the solar cycle but I can't believe that this band is not being used. I do hear some Military activity occasionally in the "government" portion of the band and some Spanish stations which I assume is TE from central or south America.
Or, maybe my scanner just has low sensitivity down there...... I used to enjoy scanning this band.
