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.

CO - Cuba on 60m by Pavel, CO7WT again...

Hi all,

I am re-posting this message from Pavel, CO7WT about the Cuban ´s permit on 60m band.

"Hi from CO7WT, Pavel in Camagüey, Cuba. 

The Official Cuba segment in 60m is this:

5418 to 5430 Khz

In the following site (see link) you can find the original document that allows cuban's too use 60m band, I was active a time ago as the first Cuban ham in the band I was the first experimental license for 60m (Authorities call it 55m here).


I suggest 5425 Khz USB as main freq in Cuba, I have tried regular contacts with cuban's and others in this freq with success and no interference, just one time on the air I get required on the air to QRT by a primary user of the frequency.

If you plan to work split, be sure to listen from time to time on the TX freq, remember you are a secondary user. 

73 de Pavel, CO7WT"

Pavel posted it to 60m Yahoo group list and suggested the QRG for planned DX-pedition from Cuba. It is useful to understand the system of approval on 60m for Cuba and remember it if you will be looking for CO on this band.

73 - Petr, OK1RP
