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)

The Hungarian 5 MHz beacon HG7BHB has now been closed down

Hi all,

The Hungarian 60m CW Beacon HG7BHB, which could be found on 5352.5kHz has now ceased operation.

Established in 2015 by MRASZ, the Hungarian national amateur radio society, the beacon went out of order on 20th February 2017 and following a substantial increase in activity near its frequency plus the fact that an alternative frequency was not available, the decision was taken to switch off the HG7BHB beacon. (Tnx: Laci, HA7PL and Paul, G4MWO)
