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)

YL - Latvia on 60m band
Radio amateurs in Latvia now have two new bands, following the introduction of their new Amateur Radio license on August 9. Access now is permitted to a new 60 meter allocation of 5351.5–5366.5kHz...
Latvian's hams are active on that band from the beginning. You can find YL2PP, YL3FW, YL2KO, YL2ON... around 5355-5360kHz.
