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.

good news is coming from UK...(tnx to Dave EI0DB)
"Hi, thought you might like to know. The UK regulator OfCom announced that with immediate effect 60 meters is opened up to all full licenses (along with 475 Kcs). Dropping the requirements for a special permit (NOV). So the push is on now to make this a "normal" ITU Ham band at WAC15."
Mni congrats to all friends in UK and hope to meet with lot of them on 60m soon.
