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.

S01WS - West Sahara on 60m CW !

Hello all,

FYI... Actually (23/8 at 01:50Z) the West Sahara team is qrv on 60m band - nw 5405kHz CW with excellent signal and booming ! They are working lot of US stations with good repports so it looks like good propagations to NA this morning. 

They were not QRV Monday 18Aug because of some technical issues so now You have the chance on CW... 

Good luck!

  1. Petr,
    I found your very nice blog from OK1HAS's QRZ page. I hope we can QSO on 60 meters this fall.

  2. Hello Dennis,

    nice to hear from You. I hope to make QSO soon. I have to work on my vintage K3 (sn 7xx) because of several issues appeared now but hope to back on the air soon.

    Enjoy the visit over there as same as here:
