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.

XW - Laos on 60m band by Bruce, 3W3B

Hi all,

did you worked Bruce from Laos as XW4XR during last days on 60m band and it was ATNO for you? If you missed him then next chance will be in 2 months...

As Bruce confirmed me he packed up his station 2 days ago already and he is now back in Vietnam (3W3B) which is his second home.

Bruce is planning to be back in XW several times this year so not to worry. This was 1st time XW on 60m so everything was ATNO for Bruce as well. He will concentrate on that band next trip.

The plans at the moment are for a possible return end of March...
