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)

SV - Greece on 60m band

Greece latest newcomer to 60m

A ministerial decision dated 26th February 2019 published in the government gazette of 5th March 2019 introduced a new Frequency Allocation Table, which authorizes amateur radio use of 5351.5 - 5366.5 kHz, on a secondary basis at 15W EIRP under the ITU 60m amateur allocation decision of WRC-15.

  1. I guess that's at least 4 new DXCC. Greece, Dodecanese, Crete and Mount Athos. Very welcome to the 60m band.

  2. CFM! If only our government knew how to measure EIRP, though !! GL de SV5DKL
