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.

60m - Tropical band in 9A


there are some information about the 60m - Tropical band activity in 9A as I got it from Chris, 9A5K...

Hi Petr...

You can check my licence at http://www.9a5k.com
Licence is VFO based, there are no chanels in range from 5.260 - 5.410 MHz... All modes allowed...

Well according to that it should not be problem to work Chris on 60m. His setup is very well done and his signal is very nice.
