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)

WRC-12 Day 22, 13th February 2012 – 4th and final week

The actual news about our 5MHz band allocation from WRC-12 see below:

During the afternoon session of COM 6 the draft agenda for WRC-15 and the preliminary draft agenda for WRC-18 was approved and sent to the Plenary session. With the exception of the UAE, who reserved their position, there were no objections to the amateur service proposal for a 5MHz allocation. The evening session dealt with the approval of the Resolutions associated with each agenda item.

  1. Today the WRC-12 Plenary meeting went over the list of future Agenda Items (for WRC-15 and WRC-18) in second reading. The meeting agreed that WRC-15 will consider a possible new secondary amateur allocation within the band 5 250 – 5 450 kHz in accordance with Resolution COM6/12 (WRC-12). Earlier today the WRC-12 Plenary came to an agreement in first reading on the text of the Resolution.
