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)

60m newsletter 10-25-21 by Joe, W8GEX

There has been a lot of 60m activity the past week or so, and will continue for the next 10 days.

S9OK operation, they are now QRT.

C5C started tonight. Their email told me they will be on 5403.5 & 5363 SSB and CW 5405 and 5361 for Europe plus 5.357 for FT8. In another email, they said the power is off and on, so if they disappear, stand by until their power is restored.

7P8RU team started last night with a big pileup into Europe.

I am also working on another ATN but not ready to release the info now.

John W5JON is active now from PJ5 after being on at PJ7.

The HR8D team should be on tomorrow if all goes well for them getting set up.

So we can look forward to some fun for the next ten days with great teams. Good DX-ing to all and have fun!

The Gambia: NOW ACTIVE

Gerard (f5nvf ) will be active from 24 October till 19 November as C5C maybe more if he can stay there longer. He will be QRV CW & SSB on 60-10 m (100 w with ic7000). He will be joined later by M0NPT & F5RAV to be QRV on all bands with ic705 & expert 1.3KFA to be QRV FT8, SSB, CW on all bands with 1k & maybe QO100 if possible (from 28 October-8 Nov ).
