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)

C37AC on 60m band by Salvador, C31CT
as confirmed from yesterday evenning Salvador, C31CT will make few days trip to Andorra and he will be so nice to give chance to us work him on 60m band...
Salvador will be QRV from Thursday 24th, also Friday 25th and if it is possible then Saturday 26th. He will be active on 60m band aprox. from 19 to 21... 22UTC each day depends to local conditions and personal situation.
Announced frequencies are as follows:
CW: 5380.5 (for Spain) + QSX 5373 kHz (for others)
USB: 5380.5 (for Spain) + QSX 5371.5 kHz (for others)
or QZF or cross mode combinations if needed, but always listening RX in 5371.5 kHz (5373 kHz).
Salvador will use C37AC or his own C31CT call in that event.
So I hope it is nice chance to work legal new one on 60m band. Do not miss Salvador over there and give him also chance to enjoy the operation with pile-up. :)
