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)

KP4 - DXCC #22 on 60m

Hi all, I am pleased to report that I finally catched Willem, WP3UX. Again it was not easy and again I worked cross mode/cross channel as I used CW of course whereas Willem used SSB. I have to cfm that most quiet channels for trials with weak sigs are 5371.5/5366.5 instead of 5403.5 (QRMed quite often). Also secret weapon - RX ant w/BPF and preamp was necessary! 73 - Petr, OK1RP
