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)

C3 - Andorra on 60m band


good news is coming from U.R.A. about the 5MHz/60m band allocation. (Tnx to Paul, G4MWO)

Andorra now joins the number of countries permitted an experimental band allocation at 5 MHz (60m).
The Andorran national amateur radio society, URA - Unio de Radioaficionats Andorrans, announced that they had received official permission to operate between 5275 - 5450 kHz on a secondary basis for short and medium distance propagation studies. Maximum power allowed is 100W PEP with a bandwidth not exceeding 3 kHz utilizing CW and USB. The permission is temporary until WRC-15.
The A.R.D.A.M. Ham radio association with C37AC callsign already tested the band so I hope that we will find more friends from C3 on the band soon.
(Tnx for information to Paul, G4MWO)
