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)

PY - Brazil on 60m band by Labre
according to information shared on the official web site the national radio club in Brazil - Labre is started their work with local authorities on the arrangement of the group of amateurs to use the band for an experimental purposes. The situation with 60m band is not clear on SA continent so let´s keep fingers crossed to friends from PY land. It can be good starting point for more South American countries on 60m.
