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.

K9W on 60m by Joe, W8GEX
We will try to be on the next three nights on 60m. Will call on the top of the hour for 10 minutes and if no takers then will go back to the regular bands.
Will be on USB and will TX on 5371.5kHz
Channel 5 (5403.5kHz) is not usable out here because of radar issue.
Thank You to Joe, W8GEX for this update. It will be good challenge from EU. Unfortunately the propagation are not the best currently. I will be glad to get reports or feedback how did You heard them...
