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)

LZ - Bulgaria 60m band allocation by Danev, LZ1US

Latest from IARU R1 Bulgarian Rep Panayot Danev, LZ1US

New Amateur Bands in Bulgaria

New amateur bands have been allowed in Bulgaria. In the future LZ hams will be able to use bands 472-479 kHz, 5250-5450 kHz, 70.0-70.5 MHz and in addition 1.8 MHz band has been extended up to 2 MHz. All those bands have to be used on secondary basis.

Important note is coming from Paul, G4MWO (tnx) that they don't come into operation until published in their national government gazette!

Congrats to LZ guys and hope to meet on 60m band quite often.

73 - Petr, OK1RP
