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.

Happy New Year 2016

I wish you happy, prosperous and healthy New Year 2016

South Cook Islands as E51WET on 60m by Magnus, SM6WET

Magnus, SM6WET, has authorization and will attempt to operate 60 meters while in the South Cook Islands as E51WET:

·         December 14-16 on Rarotonga Island
·         December 17 - January 4 on Aitutaki Atoll 
·         January 4 - 9 on Rarotonga Island again
Magnus reports that the Aitutaki QTH will likely be more conducive to operation on the lower bands, although he will not know specific details until his arrival. As with many expeditions, extra baggage can be very expensive. One additional bag results in a surcharge of $520 for this trip -- a big hit for any expedition, but particularly noteworthy for a one-man expedition. Donations to help offset excess luggage costs can be made to sm6wet@telia.com on PayPal. Every little bit helps and would be greatly appreciated. Be sure to include your call and mention 60m in the PayPal comments section.

Many thanks to Joe, W8GEX.

WRC-15 Day-13, A New Band…!


Lucky 13! – for the amateur service, as Agenda Item 1.4 (5 MHz) passed the final two readings without any comment whatsoever.

Although the 15kHz that has been agreed at ITU level is a very small international allocation, this is the first new allocation to the amateur services at HF since the WARC of 1979.

WRC-15 Day-7


Agenda Item 1.4 (5 MHz): Two steps forward and one step back might be a polite description of progress on Tuesday regarding 5 MHz and the consideration of permitted power. Some administrations are insisting on the use of tight eirp limits.

We have already overrun the schedule allowed for the sub-working group discussions and the real threat of a No Change position exists if we do not reach a consensus. At the moment there are three major administrations resisting any allocation at 5 MHz.

Several administrations allowing amateur activity at 5 MHz have already indicated that their current arrangements will continue under RR 4.4.

Dutch 5MHz QSOs - RSGB Front Page News


Several Dutch stations have appeared on the 5MHz band in the erroneous assumption that 5MHz has become available in The Netherlands.

It isn’t, and won’t be until the middle of November at the earliest. The confusion arose in the way the law is applied in The Netherlands.
Following the announcement, the radio amateur frequency tables have to be officially adjusted and published and this has not happened yet.

Until that time, any contacts with Dutch stations on 5MHz are not, in fact, legitimate.

Front Page News, GB2RS Headlines

It is confirming what I reported in preview post regarding the PA permits on 60m band so need to wait...

WRC-15 Day-5, End of Week-1


Agenda Item 1.4 (5 MHz): Some progress was made during the course of the Friday morning session. The various African organizations agreed to merge their proposal resulting in a proposal of 100 Watts between 5350-5400 kHz which will be considered alongside other proposals. 

Unfortunately other administrations are refusing to move from their position for a far smaller allocation or even NoC (No Change). As a consequence the meetings scheduled for Saturday morning have been cancelled pending feedback from various administrations back home.

WRC-15 Day-4


Agenda Item 1.4 (5 MHz) continues to occupy the time of the IARU and national society delegates attending.

Intensive debate centred around the amount of spectrum required and power limitations, with a very wide divergence of views – the former ranging from 15 to 100 kHz, the latter between 0.1W and 200 Watts (as well as those who oppose any allocation at all).

Needless to say discussions continue, with weekend working a real possibility.

There has been little progress with other agenda items of interest to the amateur services but we continue to monitor the situation.

73 - Colin, HB9/G3PSM


It looks like very hard job in Geneve and unfortunatelly we should not expect so much according to the current discussion development...

PA - Neetherland on 60m soon... ?


it seems that after some local technical issues the authorization is about two weeks from now:


The same band allocation 5350 - 5450 kHz as it is proposed for WRC-15 is prepared.

Thanks to Larry, K5RK

73 - Petr, OK1RP

WRC-15 Day-3


Mainly a day of frustrations for all concerned, but slow progress was made with Agenda Item 1.4 (5 MHz).

The proposal from CITEL, representing a number of American States, was reduced to align with the CEPT proposal for 100 kHz, while the Arab Spectrum Management Group also agreed Group also agreed to increase their proposal from 15 kHz to 50 kHz.

On the negative side, the No Change administrations held fast in their positions and indications are that this will not change in the immediate future.

Tomorrow it might be necessary to raise the agenda item to the next level of Working Group 4 to achieve further progress.


73 - Petr, OK1RP

WRC-15 has started by Nov-2-15...


Colin Thomas G3PSM is attending as part of the UK Delegation. IARU observers are also present and are under no illusions regarding the challenge ahead.

The conference opened on Monday Nov-2 and will run until Nov-27. Overall 3,800 delegates, an increase of 1,000 over WRC-12, representing 162 administrations and 136 organisations are registered for this 4 week conference.

Day 1: This was spent with the usual courtesies being exchanged and the organisation of the conference being confirmed.
  • Agenda Item 1.4 (5 MHz) will be considered in Committee 4, Sub-Working Group 4B1.
  • Agenda Item 1.18 (77 GHz) will be discussed in Sub-Working Group 4A3 and
  • Agenda Item 10 (Future Agenda Items) in Committee 6.
Committee 4 is chaired by Martin Fenton from Ofcom

Day 2: The real work starts…


We should keep all fingers crossed.

IARU gears up for the WRC-15 by Jim, VK3PC

IARU gears up for the WRC-15

Delegations are heading to the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) World Radiocommunications Conference, and there will be a strong team from the International Amateur Radio Union (IARU). The ITU conference is in Geneva, Switzerland on November 2 to 27. In a book the ITU describes WRC-15 as a new landmark for the radiocommunication world and the use of satellites.
The ITU has acknowledged the close cooperation it has with the International Amateur Radio Union (IARU) - founded in Paris 1925, and the recognised spokesman for the Amateur Radio community. Delegates will consider several items of interest to the Amateur Service and the Amateur Satellite Service.

The WRC-15 agenda includes Item 1.4, which has the possibility of allocating an appropriate amount of spectrum to the Amateur Service on a secondary basis within the band 5250-5450 kHz.

The IARU describes the potential new band as being “a high priority for the amateur service”, but is not over-confident of getting the new secondary allocation, as there is some opposition.

The IARU-team has 18 members and includes Dale Hughes VK1DSH, partly funded by the WIA and IARU. About 10 of them are with their WRC-15 country-based delegation.
As co-lead are the IARU President Tim Ellam VE6SH and Vice-President Ole Garpestad LA2RR.

Tim VE6SH said there had been enormous preparation by the IARU, and its member societies, which includes being active at numerous preparatory meetings held throughout the world.
He said the IARU team will make their best effort for a possible allocation to Amateur Service near 5 MHz, and watch other developments that may impinge on the Amateur Service and Amateur Satellite Service.

On the 5 MHz band proposal, before the WRC-15 several major countries, including Canada, Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States of America, view a wide allocation as too generous.
Tim VE6SH said there had been enormous preparation by the IARU, and its member societies, which includes being active at numerous preparatory meetings held throughout the world. The IARU will host a function on November 10 with all at the WRC-15 being invited to attend.

It will also have an emergency communications display trailer on November 8-14, with IARU International Coordinator for Emergency Communications, Hans Zimmermann HB9AQS.
The trailer-mounted display will have equipment showing the voice, text and image mode capabilities for emergency communications, plus a mobile antenna.

Specialist German club 'Notfunk Deutschland' (Emergency Radio Germany), in agreement with the IARU Member Society, Deutscher Amateur Radio Club (DARC), will have posters and other material provided by it and several IARU member societies.

Hans HB9AQS, with help of the three IARU regional emergency communication coordinators, has produced a single page in various languages as a hand-out at the display.

Help to Palmyra DXpedition please...


I would like to ask for kind help to Joe, W8GEX as follows:
Janet W8CAA and Joe, W8GEX are in charge of fundraising for the upcoming Palmyra DXpedition. They have already asked the large foundations and large clubs in Europe for help, but the KH5 DXpedition is still in need of money to meet their budget. A large payment is due on 1st Nov.

As you know KH5 is high on the most wanted list in Europe. There has not been a great response from news releases so they would like to write to the European clubs and individuals for support. This is a huge undertaking and they need money from everyone worldwide.

So this would be a huge help if some of us could participate for this trip.

Go to http://palmyra2016.org/ to send a donation. As you know every dollar helps.

Many thanks for reading and help if possible.

More about Gambia:
Gambia, or Republic of the Gambia, a country of western Africa. Gambia occupies a narrow strip on both sides of the Gambia River and is bounded by Senegal and the Atlantic Ocean. The total area is 4,361 square miles (11,295 km2).
Gambia consists mainly of savannas and marshes. The Gambia River is the chief waterway and is widely used for transport. The country has a tropical climate. Gambia's economy is based almost entirely on agriculture, which employs about 80 per cent of the workforce. Peanuts are the chief cash crop. Also important to the economy are fishing and tourism. Roads are poorly developed. There is an international airport near Banjul, at Yundum. Banjul is the principal seaport. The basic currency unit is the dalasi.
Gambia's population in 1993 was 1,025,867. Banjul, the capital, had a population of 42,326 in 1993. Most Gambians are Negroid; the major groups are the Malinké (Mandingo), Wolof, and Fulani. Islam is the predominant religion; less than 10 per cent of the population is Christian. The literacy rate is about 25 per cent, and about half of the children of primary school age attend school.
Under the constitution of 1996 Gambia is a republic with an elected president. The country is a member of the Commonwealth of Nations.
Gambia was discovered by Portuguese navigators in the 15th century and came under British control in the 1600's. It was a part of Sierra Leone, 1807–43; a crown colony, 1843–66; and a part of the West African Settlements, 1866–88. Gambia became a separate crown colony again in 1888. In 1902 most of the area was formed into a protectorate; a small region centered on Banjul (then called Bathurst) remained a colony. Gambia was granted independence in 1965, and became a constitutional monarchy. Dawda Jawara was the first prime minister. In 1970 Gambia became a republic with Jawara as president. During 1981–89, Gambia was joined with Senegal in a loose confederation called Senegambia. In 1994 Jawara was overthrown in a military coup. In 1996 a democratic constitution was established and civilian rule was restored.

T42US - DX pedition to Cuba by Jim, WB2REM

Hi all,

according to preview message regarding the Cuba 60m band plan there I am sending the news about the T42US operation planned for October as announced by Jim, WB2REM...

Hi Group,

Thank you all for your suggestions and information. I will program my IC706 to TX in the Cuban band (TBA when we can scope out interference-radio has been modified) and receive on 5.4035 MHz (USB) or 5.4050 MHz (CW) – primary and if that gets too crowded we will monitor the other frequency of 5.3715 MHz (USB) or 5.3730 MHz (CW). 

We will operate, when we can and during conditions on 60 Meters on non-contest days, Oct 21, 22 and 23 until 23:59Z. Then we will be back on October 26th and 27th (closing down late afternoon on the 27th). We will try to work as many of you as we can but probably won’t have internet accessibility to take requests or spot frequencies. 

Please help to publicize our operation. We have already printed a beautiful commemorative QSL card and will also be using OQRS. Please visit our site for more information.

CO - Cuba on 60m by Pavel, CO7WT again...

Hi all,

I am re-posting this message from Pavel, CO7WT about the Cuban ´s permit on 60m band.

"Hi from CO7WT, Pavel in Camagüey, Cuba. 

The Official Cuba segment in 60m is this:

5418 to 5430 Khz

In the following site (see link) you can find the original document that allows cuban's too use 60m band, I was active a time ago as the first Cuban ham in the band I was the first experimental license for 60m (Authorities call it 55m here).


I suggest 5425 Khz USB as main freq in Cuba, I have tried regular contacts with cuban's and others in this freq with success and no interference, just one time on the air I get required on the air to QRT by a primary user of the frequency.

If you plan to work split, be sure to listen from time to time on the TX freq, remember you are a secondary user. 

73 de Pavel, CO7WT"

Pavel posted it to 60m Yahoo group list and suggested the QRG for planned DX-pedition from Cuba. It is useful to understand the system of approval on 60m for Cuba and remember it if you will be looking for CO on this band.

T2GC - Tuvalu on 60m by Stan, LZ1GC update

Hi all,

according to our short email discussion with Stan, LZ1GC there is proposed channels arrangement for their 60m band operation from Tuvalu as T2GC...

Stan will try with team operate on 5373kHz or 5405kHz on CW (appropriate QRGs on SSB for these channels of course). In case of pile-up and needs they will try to use 5373 and split up to 5405...

The most important will be the actual situation with radar QRM in this area. 

Good luck to all,

73 - Petr, OK1RP

SM - Sweden on 60m... QSX please!

Hi all,

when I checked the SM stations activity and after going thru my 60m log I realized that they are not so often QRV maybe because it is not easy for them to operate over here using current channels allocation...

I worked some friends from SM on 60m band and I listened to them mostly on 5391.5, 5321.5 or 5381.5kHz while my TX was on standard channels like ch4 or ch5.

I am sure that Sweden ops are not so happy with their channels allocation as they are not allowed to operate on standard set of channels like UK or US etc.

Sweden 60m band allocation is as follows:

(CW +1.5kHz)

5310 kHz
5320 kHz
5380 kHz
5390 kHz

All modes are allowed.
Power allowed to use is 100W.
Bandwidth per channel is 4kHz.

It means that our friends from Sweden are really restricted on the band and its not easy to work all others. The QSX is the only way as same as for Spanish ops on that band. So I would like to kindly ask all of 60m friends to remember our friends with different band allocation and listenned/operate often with QSX to their windows please.

If You are not remember which frequencies to be used for these friends like EA, SM then check this blog, hi.

Good luck on the band,

A4 - Oman on 60m band by San, A45WH


San, A45WH informed that 60 meter operation has been granted to them by the Royal Omani Amateur Radio Society on Experimental Basis.

He promised to be QRV on 60m band only CW using his new TS-590SG Kenwood rig and a homebrew vertical antenna.

I am going to send him some short intro and recommendation for the US and EU operation so we can be confident for new country on the band.

T2 - Tuvalu on 60m band soon


Stan, LZ1GC and Lubo, OM5ZW, will activate Tuvalu Isl. - T2GC between September 24, 2015 and October 14, 2015. The activity will on all HF bands - from 160 - 6 meters on CW / SSB / RTTY / PSK from Vaiaku Lagi Hotel, Funafuti, IOTA OC - 015, Grid Loc. RI91OL.

The team will be joined by John, KK7L who will be there from September 29 to October 6. John will try to take a transceiver with him, which he plans to donate to T2TT, Talia Kofe, the islands only local Amateur Radio operator. 


As Stan mentioned, they will try to activate Tuvalu / T2GC /on 60 meters CW and SSB - both modes! "I hope that the RADAR will not make me problems then! Last year on Nauru Isl. / C21GC / the RADAR was 599 +30 - 40 db. It was a big problem indeed."

Hungarian 60m band beacon HG7BHB on 5357kHz

if you realized, there is new 60m beacon in Hungary on 5357kHz. I listenned to this beacon for several evennings and it was heard every time perfectly with strong signal over S9 using the HA7SO private callsign.
The Hungarian CW Beacon on 5357 kHz has now changed it's callsign to HG7BHB from the temporary one of private HA7SO and as it is reported the power has been reduced from 100 to 50W only. The antenna is a Diamond BB-6W wideband HF antenna at a height of 4m only.

HA - DXCC #50 on 60m CW only!

Hello all,
my K3 just arrived back from Elecraft service where it was repaired and also completely upgraded. As I purchased my K3 early in 2008 and radio never been upgraded or modified from that time so it was really neccessary. Now it is up to date with current production release, some strange issues are repaired and even more... Second receiver is installed, KBPF3A and new synthesizers are installed and all is fully adjusted, tweaked and tested. So I was able to come back to 60m band after few months.
When I turned ON my K3 on 60m band I found that the high summer time noise is very limiting for the operation right now. Well I will have to put my receiving loop back on board after long refurbishing period. Without receiving antenna and some other noise reduction tools it will be hard job over there. Luckily K3 has really effective weapons like NB or even DSP noise reduction. So now it is time to play with it.
My DXCC score was for long time unchanged because I catched most of active countries on this band. My goal to reach 50 DXCC sounded like mission impossible as working new country took several months of investigation, watching the DX-peditions and their 60m band ability etc.

The dream turned to the reality when I found Steve, HA5CLF (ex OL8CCW, OK3CLF) on ch5 giving his CQ. I know that Hungarian stations got the permission to the 60m band and the activity in the beginning was high. Unfortunately lot of them abandoned this band for very low activity and high noise level in the summer time...

I worked Steve, HA5CLF as my DXCC #50 and I reached my first goal on this band after years of daily work. An interesting think is that I am working exclusively CW so all of my QSOs and DXCC countries reached over there are CW ONLY! For that reason I never worked several unique and rare countries because they never switched to CW...

Well another goal has been arranged. New target is defined and I hope that it will be as funny as the preview period on this band.

Thank You to all friends on the 60m band for their friendship, effort, enthusiasm and mainly an excellent camaraderie!
I really like it...

Navassa on 60m maybe during next three days!

Hello all,

maybe the best news coming from Joe, W8GEX...

"I have great news about another all time new one. I have been working on this for some time now. The team leaders of K1N Navassa have given the team permission to operate the 60m band. Gary K4AVC made, tested, and shipped the team an inverted vee to them a few months ago.

They might come on 5.403.5 USB tonight, Friday and Saturday nights. Their sunset is at about 2300. The antenna is up at 70 ft on the light house.
They said they will be on 60m but it all depends on the availability of an extra radio and their not sure on the exact time. 

If they feel a reason to split they will announce it. PLEASE listen for any operator instructions. They are well aware the USA only has five channels.

It will be some time before another group goes back to Navassa, so this may be the only opportunity in our lifetime to work this new one.

So be kind and courteous and stand by as they work a station. If you don’t hear them well please wait until their signal builds. USA, if they call for Europe, please stand by. The same goes for Europe when they are calling for North America.

Please consider donating to this DXpedition as this is a very expensive trip."

Many thanks for DX flash news to Joe, W8GEX!
