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)

60m - Tropical band in OZ
According to information from OZ friends the 60m band operation is legal with DTA license.
You need to obtain a special license from the Danish Telecom Agency to be able to operate on 60m. You have to pay an annual fee for the band. This new license allows You to use the entire band from 5250-5450 kHz (VFO based > not channels definned) with even 1 kW and all modes.
Be note that in OZ the 60m licenses are still on a trial basis and time limited by end of 2011.
