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)

CT7 by Bernard, F9IE on 60m
I am forwarding the message which is going thru different channels about activity from CT7 on 60m.
Bernard F9IE is now active as CT7 from Algarve in IM67GE / Portugal.
He has worked a few UK stations already and he is running 100 watts to a dipole inverted Vee antenna with apex 6 / 7m. He will be there for about 2 weeks and he is using common frequencies:
ssb 5403.5 and 5371.5
cw 5405 and 5373
Good luck ,
