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.

ZS activity on 60m band by SARL
The SARL association is organizing an unique activity weekend on 60 meters from Sat, November 9, 00:01 and ending at midnight Sun, November 10 evening.
Activities will focus on 5260 KHz frequency, all modes. The objective is to study the propagation between many stations in many parts of South Africa and elsewhere as possible worldwide. It seems interesting to listen carefully to this frequency over Europe.
It will be great to have a chance make crossband QSOs to 40m or 80m band from countries where the 60m band is not allowed like OK land...
Thank You to F6AIU / F5SN for sharing this information with us and wish to all of us good luck and have a fun on 60m this weekend.
