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)

TU - Ivory Coast on 60m by Jan, DJ8NK

Jan DJ8NK is on Channel 4 (5.371.5) from the Ivory Coast as I type this. Its a new one for 60 meters. Listen for him tonight and the next few nights. I suggested to him to come on the top and bottom of the hour. Spot him on the cluster so everybody knows he's on the band. I think this is the fourth new country he has put on for us.
Bob WH6XM reported " I'll be monitoring channel 4 (5.371.5) more often during my night hours.  Also be transmitting periodically".


As Joe, W8GEX mentioned Jan, DJ8NK is operating as TU5NK and will be on channel 4 again tonight (28.11.2013) at 2215Z. This is a NEW ONE on 60m. I will be glad for any reports about his signals around EU/WW.

Good luck,
