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.

T2GC - Tuvalu on 60m by Stan, LZ1GC update
according to our short email discussion with Stan, LZ1GC there is proposed channels arrangement for their 60m band operation from Tuvalu as T2GC...
Stan will try with team operate on 5373kHz or 5405kHz on CW (appropriate QRGs on SSB for these channels of course). In case of pile-up and needs they will try to use 5373 and split up to 5405...
The most important will be the actual situation with radar QRM in this area.
Good luck to all,
73 - Petr, OK1RP
