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.

IARU-R3 Band plan for 60m - update by NZART


short info arrived from NZART Administration Officer to my queries...

  • What is the status of the IARU Region 3 band plan? (As far as I am aware, the only published 5 MHz plan is a draft put together by IARU Region 1.)  
  • What is the status of the 5 MHz band in New Zealand?  (No allocation as yet but discussions are ongoing with the regulator and current licensees)

  • So in fact no additional information or news are available yet.
    The current band plans are available as I posted already here:
