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.

T42US - DX pedition to Cuba by Jim, WB2REM

Hi all,

according to preview message regarding the Cuba 60m band plan there I am sending the news about the T42US operation planned for October as announced by Jim, WB2REM...

Hi Group,

Thank you all for your suggestions and information. I will program my IC706 to TX in the Cuban band (TBA when we can scope out interference-radio has been modified) and receive on 5.4035 MHz (USB) or 5.4050 MHz (CW) – primary and if that gets too crowded we will monitor the other frequency of 5.3715 MHz (USB) or 5.3730 MHz (CW). 

We will operate, when we can and during conditions on 60 Meters on non-contest days, Oct 21, 22 and 23 until 23:59Z. Then we will be back on October 26th and 27th (closing down late afternoon on the 27th). We will try to work as many of you as we can but probably won’t have internet accessibility to take requests or spot frequencies. 

Please help to publicize our operation. We have already printed a beautiful commemorative QSL card and will also be using OQRS. Please visit our site for more information.
