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)

As I believe everyone knows, the June 22 CODAR test was plagued by an Internet problem which prevented control of two CODAR sites. Now that all sites are back on-line we are going to re-run the tests this Wednesday, June 29, 2011. Test times will again be 8 P.M. EDT - 00:00z and repeated at 8 P.M. PDT - 03:00z. Your cooperation in monitoring and reporting this test again for the second time is important and appreciated. Should anything interfere with being able to control ALL sites I will send out an Email otherwise assume the test is still on.

73, TNX for your cooperation.
