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)

GB3WES 60m beacon - off air
short info came from John, G3WGV about the off air status of GB3WES beacon on 60m band:
"The NoV for GB3WES is cancelled by Ofcom as of midnight on 31-Mar-2014 and as yet the requested renewal has not been forthcoming. I have therefore had no option but to turn the beacon off. Hopefully this is only a temporary close down." 73, John, G3WGV
I hope it will be solved quickly as it was very helpful tool for propagation check.
