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.

Ivory Coast on 60m by Jan, DJ8NK


TU5AX, TU5XV and TU5NK are the respective callsigns for Chris (F4WBN)(ex TL0A), Paul (F6EXV) and Jan (DJ8NK) for this solidarity radio operation which will take place from 17. - 30.Nov. 2013.

Activity will be on SSB, CW and RTTY, from 160 to 6m. QSL to home calls, via bureau, direct or OQRS (Clublog).

The 3 operators will support the clubstation TU2CI and will leave equipment behind (radios and antennas), install it and train the local operators to use it, in order to revive the Abidjan radio club, and assist some local hams who have strongly suffered from the civil war that hit the country some time ago.

Tks Paul/F6EXV

Thanks to Paul, F6EXV and all guys for activity. Its not so far from EU so it should not be big issue but maybe challenge from USA. 

I will be happy for Your reports by email w/comments about Your DX hunting to Africa...

73 - Petr, OK1RP
