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)

Effective from 1st Jan 2017 please paper QSL via OM-bureau only.

UK 60m Band Utilization Page by Paul, G4WMO

Hello all,

who missed it on the reflector Paul, G4WMO updated the "UK 60m Band Utilization Page" to reflect the brave new world of 60m in the UK, see his post:

This page contains a link to the new UK 60m Notice of Variation,
announced by OFCOM, together with a chart depicting the new band
segments in graphical form.

The page also contains the "UK 60m Band Whiteboard", which serves as a platform for ideas put forward by many people on how to utilize the band. The Whiteboard is not a bandplan, nor is it "official" in any way.

It is simply a starting point for ideas on band usage, and will almost certainly change as things settle down.

Any suggestions for the Whiteboard should be posted in the "UK 5 Megs" Yahoo Group (
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ukfivemegs/ ). All future updates to the Whiteboard will appear on the "UK 60m Band Utilization Page".

The page also contains a link to the NoV application form, and a link to the updated worldwide 60m chart from Paul Gaskell, G4WMO.
