Never heard of WSJT?

Amateurs who are serious about weak signal work have been using that for years, for both terrestrial communications, and moonbounce on VHF and above.  

And it's also being used quite often now on HF.   10 meters is good example.  When propagation doesn't allow for SSB, you'll find signals on 28.076.

Those signals won't appear on a scanner, HT or spectrum analyser; but chances are that someone is using the band(s).
