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.

A35 - The Kingdom of Tonga on 60m by Chris, GM3WOJ
Chris GM3WOJ (A35V) and Keith GM4YXI (A35X) will be active from Tonga between April 4-18, 2014.
QRV on 160-10m, CW/SSB and RTTY.
According to last information Chris is hopeful he’ll get 60m permission once on the island.
More updated informations You can get here:
The QSL manager for A35V and A35X is Kim Larson N3SL.
According to VOACAP simulation/prediction it seems to be very hard on 60m for OK land...
I wish good luck to all when Chris will get the permission and operate on 60m band...
