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)

Faroe Isl. OY1R/MM on 60m

The news coming from Joe, W8GEX/Dave, G4OTU...

Worth noting - OY1R/MM  Regin is QRV from the MV Stril Neptun 
(OZ2151... IMO 9201786)...worked on 5398.5 USB on 6th Jan 2115Z - he was near the Dutch coast.

"I am on 60m most evening and call CQ on CW 5405 and SSB 5398.5 or 5405. When calling on 5398.5 I also listen on 5405."

Well I tried to look for Regin last nites but he probably left the MV already.
