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.

Ascension Isl. ZD8D by Werner, DJ9KH on 60m

The ZD8D operators will be Werner/DJ9KH, Axel/DK9BDN and Christian/DL6KAC from Feb. 22nd to March 6th. Like last year they will use channel 4 and 5 SSB and CW. Using 100W and almost a full size quarter wave vertical

They will be active as ZD8D during February and March 2015. QSL via DL9HO.The ZD8D Web page http://www.zd8d.de   

I wish to all hunters good luck (should be my DXCC #50 :) so I will have to put an extra effort in order to catch them on 60m).

73 - Petr, OK1RP
