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.

Dominica, J7 on 60m band news by Paul, G4MWO


this news just arrived from Paul, G4MWO:

Hi All,
The Dominica National Telecommunications Regulator has permitted Amateur operation on five 3 kHz-wide channels on 5 Mhz. These are - 5330.5, 5346.5, 5355.5, 5371.5 and 5403.5 kHz at 50W pep SSB.
This allocation is applicable to General and Advanced licensees only.
Please note that the Dominica (J7) 5 MHz allocation should not be confused with the Dominican Republic (HI), which also has a 5 MHz allocation.
(Tnx: ECTEL, Dominica NTRC)
Cheers, 73,

Thank You to Paul, G4MWO for his always up to date news and great support. It will be nice to hear some of the lowbands enthusiasts guys from J7 on 60m band also. The condx will be good for sure in coming season so why not to work also Dominica over there.

73 - Petr, OK1RP
