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)

TF - Iceland Retains Existing 5 MHz Allocation Till End of 2017


Iceland Retains Existing 5 MHz Allocation Till End of 2017 instead of WRC-15 implementation following the resolution of IARU Interim Meeting in Vienna in April 2016 and related documents with the recommendation notice "It is strongly recommended that frequencies within the WRC-15 allocation only be used if there are no other frequencies available at 5 MHz under domestic (ITU-R article 4.4) permissions."

Jonas, TF3JB reports - "The Icelandic PTA decided on May 12, 2017 to extend the experimental license privileges for radio amateurs in the 5 MHz band until December 31, 2017.

The privileges are for 5260-5410 kHz, with 100W EIRP. Mode of emission: CW, USB, PSK-31 and other digital modes. The permit is the same for N and G licensees.

Currently 25 TF licensees have an experimental license on 60 meters.
