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)

EA - Spain on 60m by Javier, EA7OP - updated
as Javier, EA7OP informed the very good news is coming
The SETSI allowed EAs to operate on 60m band from Jan - July 2014
on channel basis.
Allowed channels [kHz]:
The bandwidth to be used is 3kHz.
Power output 100W. Modes CW/SSB.
So it´s great news and we will be happy
to meet EAs on 60m band in 2014.
Thanks to great job of Paul, G4MWO and his confirmation gotten from guys at URE the Spanish national society its confirmed that posted new channels are CENTRE - i.e USB dial frequencies are 1.5 kHz below the stated frequencies.
Many thanks to Paul as same as URE guys!
