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)

FIVEMEGS FOR FALKLANDS

Major changes to the Falklands Islands Communications Laws have been announced by the Falklands Islands Communications Regulator. They were published in the official Falklands Islands Gazette on 11 November 2019 and came into force on 15 November 2019

One of these has resulted in the new WRC-15 60m Secondary Allocation becoming available to Falklands Radio Amateurs. The allocation 5351.5 – 5366.5 kHz, with a maximum power of 25W EIRP has been granted for Amateur Radio operations in the islands (see p.6).
