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 OM
good news coming to all of us from Slovakia about the 60m band operation.
In Slovakia just one channel (FA) is allowed for experimental purposes.
All OM stations can use the band from 5258.5 to 5261.5 MHz which is as same as the band allocation in Czech Republic. The allowed power is max. 100 W ERP and licences are valid for 1 year as same as in OK land.
It seems that first permitted and active on the band was Jaro, OM1II.
Active callsigns from last few weeks are:
Good luck to all with hunting new DXCC from SLovakia and CU on the air...
