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.

Anegada Isl. - VP2V on 60m


we should pay attention to following activity as there is chance for 60m band operation...

"We believe that it is more important to give a new country to "small pistol" than to give an 8th band QSO to a "big gun" station. By doing this, we hope to fulfill the demand for a "new one", especially from stations located in Japan and the rest of the Far East." Bogdan VP2V/SP2FUD, Kazik VP2V/SP6AXW, Leszek VP2V/SP6CIK, Janusz VP2V/SP9FIH, Robert VP2V/SP9WZS

According to my last email with Janusz, SP9FIH I got information regarding the possibility to operate on 60m band as follows:

Thank you for good question Petr. We will check possibilities (license & equipment) and inform HAM community.

So never say never...we will see. I will update info there according to their feedback.

Good luck guys on the Isl.
