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)

5W - Samoa on 60m by Hans, DF2UU

thanks to Joe, W8GEX and Atsu, 5W1SA I can share the flash news regarding the activity of Hans, DF2UU from 5W on 60m band this weekend...

"5W0UU (DF2UU) Hans will active on 60m this coming Saturday and Sunday on 5405.0 CW.

Possibly SSB by request but depends on the propagation. His antenna is Inverted L that vertical part is share with 40/80/160m so 60m is available on these 2 days only. He was not expected QRV 60m but I showed him on his license, you are permitted!

I have advised him, try SR at North America instead of earlier time that people are sleeping.

I hope he will consider getting on at Europe’s sunrise as well. I am sure that Atsu will keep me posted on any changes.
Many thanks again to both friends as same as to Hans, DF2UU for his effort.
