27MHz was required for my algorithm to get the WSPR tone spacing exact on 2m. On all lower bands than that, 25MHz or 27MHz both produced exact solutions. Therefore I chose to use the 27MHz crystal in QRP Labs kits.
26MHz will be fine also, all across HF. Holes in coverage of my algorithm (for exact WSPR tone spacing) only started to appear beyond 40MHz as I recall. So I couldn't say for sure that 26MHz will produce accurate tone spacing for WSPR on 6m, 4m and 2m bands. But you said you used it successfully on 2m so I think it the proof of the pudding is in the eating :-)
