Welcome to Tropical band
To most people the phrase "tropical bands" bring a pretty clear picture to mind - a bunch of shirtless guys playing calypso music. But to experienced shortwave DXers those two little words express the most challenging and enjoyable part of the radio hobby. The phrase kindles memories of a DXer's best catches and favorite QSLs, of exotic stations, music and of early morning listening sessions. (Don Moore)
I like the "Tropical band" name for new 60m allocation. (OK1RP)

60m band in DL - update
yesterday I got email from Wolf, DK5AI regarding the 60m band in Germany as follows:
Well, situation about 60m is unchanged. I just read articles about that but officials of DARC think there is no chance in the (near) future. Probably there is a very little chance for single people to apply for an experimental licenses, like we have on 70 MHz at the moment. But that is (also 70 MHz) NO amateur radio, its "Experimental Radio". That is all I have for the moment Petr. Have a happy and healthy New Year 2012, always glad to hear from you.

So another bad news from central EU country coming regarding the operation on the Tropical band. It seems that not only OK land but also Italy, Germany and few others has the similar troubles with 60m band.
We can wish to all of us an improvement in the near future. Thank You Wolf for Your updated information and good luck.
