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.

OH - Finland on 60m band by Jari, OH2BU (aka OH2P)

Hi all,

Jari, OH2BU ( aka OH2P on 60 m) informs us that:
“On Friday Oct. 28 our PTT announced that all OH stations will get permission to use 5351.5 – 5366.5 kHz starting Jan. 1st 2017 with
15 W eirp.

The special licenses which now are valid for maximum of five years will continue to be valid till the end of each license.”

SRAL ( Finnish national amateur radio society ) 60m News Page :

As the Finland has not 60m band allocation arranged until now it is good progress at least.

(Many thanks for Paul, G4MWO and Jari, OH2BU for info)
