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.

WRC-15 Day-13, A New Band…!
Lucky 13! – for the amateur service, as Agenda Item 1.4 (5 MHz) passed the final two readings without any comment whatsoever.
Although the 15kHz that has been agreed at ITU level is a very small international allocation, this is the first new allocation to the amateur services at HF since the WARC of 1979.
