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.

HB - Switzerland on 60m band
Swiss got WRC-15 band preliminary allocation on January 1st 2017.
As usual the 15W EIRP only...
The list of active station is here:
HB9AMO, HB9DAX, HB9ODI, HB9OQ, HB9TPT, HB9FAX, HB9HFN, HB9CVQ, HB9DCO and many others.
Unfortunately most of them is running JT65 so making the CW QSO with HB9 is still not as easy as it sounds to be...
