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.

60m band news in EA by Javier, EA7OP


thank You to Javier, EA7OP for his update about the 60m band operation in Spain as follows:

"In response to the request made by the Spanish Amateur Radio Union for the renewal of the special permit in the band of 5 MHz, the Secretary of State for Telecommunications proceeded the authorization under certain conditions as temporary and experimental."

The original Spanish message can be read here:

5 MHz, (60 Metros)
La SETSI analizará y muy posiblemente resolverá favorablemente en condiciones a determinar, una autorización especial y experimental para tener acceso a la banda de 5,2 MHz tal y como disfrutan desde hace algunos años más de 12 países europeos. La URE presentará de manera inmediata su solicitud junto con un resumen de los países en los que esta banda está autorizada experimentalmente a aficionados.

En Diciembre de 2014 resuelve:
Autorizar el uso de las frecuencias siguientes durante el primer semestre del año 2014, ampliado hasta el 30 de Noviembre de 2.015:
5268, 5295, 5313, 5382, 5430 y 5439 kHz.

  1. Are you interested in attaining enlightenment and personal growth?

    Try doing the following two yoga exercises daily:

    Sodarshan Kriya Yoga

    Sat Nam Kriya Yoga

    Are you interested in preventing and curing cancer, Alzheimer's, high blood pressure, and many other common diseases using an inexpensive, natural indian spice called turmeric?

    Take two teaspoons full of turmeric powder mixed with a cup of warm soy milk (or any kind of non-dairy milk that you'd like). Also eat 2 or 3 black peppercorns along with it, as the pepper helps your body absorb the turmeric better. You also need fat for the turmeric to be absorbed properly, which is why drinking turmeric mixed in water won't work. You have to drink it with milk or some fatty based liquid. Do this twice a day and you will start to feel amazing within a couple of weeks.

    Lastly, please read the following two ancient indian scriptures which talk about the divine love of God:

    Ananda Vrindavan Campu PDF

    Govinda Lilamrta PDF
