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)

The 320 CW Net date/time 60m schedule by Petr, OK1RP
I have with John, G4SRE in UK land been tweaking the freqs/times which hope it is ok for everyone for 320 CW Net activities.
The frequencies and date/time schedule proposal:
Tuesdays: 80m / 3545kHz / 19:30z
Thursdays: 60m / 5333 kHz TX and 5332kHz RX for OK land,
5333 kHz for TX/RX when only UK stations / 19:30z
Sundays: 40m / 7020kHz / 17:00z (alternatively 19:30z)
OK land does not have the same freqs which has the UKs...
Do not know what is the "320 CW Net"...?
The Clansman PRC-320 is a lightweight HF/SSB radio station designed as part of the British Army's Clansman range of radio equipments for combat use throughout the world. It was used by long-range patrols and Special Forces because of it's sky-wave range performance and hand generator system. SAS patrols in Falklands, Gulf etc. used this famous green radio and it is still working well after years.
If You are PRC-320 set owner and You would like to be in regular contact with other 320's users /CW preffered/ this 320 CW Net is determined.
Cu on the air.
